A retired soldier applied for a position at Marshall Space Center in Huntsville, Alabama and was offered a job interview.
The interviewer looked the man over and asked him, “Have you been in the military?”
“Yes”, the man replied, “I served in the Army in Iraq for two years”.
The interviewer told him, “That’s good, it will give you extra points towards employment”.
He then asked the man, “Are you disabled in any way?”
The veteran replied, “Yes sir 100%. A mortar round exploded near me and blew my testicles off”.
The interviewer told the man, “I’m really sorry to hear that, but the good news is that I can hire you right away. The hours are from 8:00am to 4:00pm. You can start tomorrow. Come in at 10:00am”.
The retired soldier was puzzled and asked the interviewer, “If the hours are from 8:00am to 4:00pm, then why do you want me to come in at 10:00am?”
“This is a government job”, the interviewer said. “For the first two hours we just stand around scratching our balls There’s no point in you coming in for that”.
