Aptitude test.


Seamus, deciding that it was about time to get off his backside and head up to Dublin to get a job, applied for a position with an engineering firm. Having managed to bullshit his way through the initial application process, it all hinged on the aptitude test, and his only other competition for the position was an English applicant.
The department head sat both applicants down and said to them "Well, you are both evenly matched according to your educational qualifications you listed on your application form, so this 99 question aptitude test should decide who gets the job"
Three hours later, the papers are handed in for marking, and shortly afterwards the manager goes up to Seamus and says"Thank you Seamus for the interest in the position....it was close, and both of you got 99 out of the hundred questions correct, but we decided to give the job to the other applicant"
Seamus was indignant...and started to rant and rave at the manager "And why would you be doing that? We both got 99 questions correct. This being Ireland and me being Irish I should get the job, not some English blow-in!"
The manager lets Seamus finish before saying "We have made our decision not on the correct answers, but on the question you missed."
"And just how would one incorrect answer be better
than the other?"asked Seamus
"Simple" replies the manager..... "The English guy put down, on question number 75, I don't know.....you put down, and neither do I!"
