What Is Two And Two?
Monday Jun 05th, 2017
A business man was interviewing applicants for a manager position. He devised a test to select the best person for the job. He asked each applicant, "What is two and two?"
The first interviewee was a journalist. His answer was "Twenty-two."
The second applicant was an engineer. He pulled out a slide rule and showed the answer to be between 3.999 and 4.001.
The next person was a lawyer. He stated that in the case of Jenkins v Brown, two and two was proven to be four.
The last applicant was an accountant. When asked, "How much is two and two?" the accountant stood up, went over to the door and closed it, then came back and sat down. He leaned across the desk and said in a low voice..."How much do you want it to be?"
He got the job.
