"HELP WANTED. Must be able to type, must be good with a computer and must be bilingual. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer."
A short time afterwards, a dog trotted up to the window, saw the sign and
went inside. He looked at the receptionist and wagged his tail, then walked over
to the sign, looked at it and whined.
Getting the idea, the receptionist got the office manager. The office manager
looked at the dog and was surprised, to say the least. However, the dog looked
determined, so he led him into the office. Inside, the dog jumped up on the
chair and stared at the manager. The manager said, "I can't hire you. The sign
says you have to be able to type."
The dog jumped down, went to the typewriter and proceeded to type out a
perfect letter. He took out the page and trotted over to the manager and gave it
to him, then jumped back on the chair. The manager was stunned, but then told
the dog, "The sign says you have to be good with a computer."
The dog jumped down again and went to the computer. The dog proceeded to
demonstrate his expertise with various programs and produced a sample
spreadsheet and database and presented them to the manager. By this time the
manager was totally dumbfounded! He looked at the dog and said, "I realize that
you are a very intelligent dog and have some interesting abilities. However, I
*still* can't give you the job."
The dog jumped down and went to a copy of the sign and put his paw on the
part about being an Equal Opportunity Employer. The manager said, "Yes, but the
sign *also* says that you have to be bilingual."
The dog looked at him straight
in the face and said, "Meow."
