The Job Interview

An ex - Squaddie gets an interview for a job as an electrician.

The interviewer says: “Recruitment is done on a points system.
Have you served in the armed forces”?

“Yes”, he says, “I was in the army for sixteen years and served in Iraq”.

The interviewer says “Great, that will give you extra points
towards employment”. He then asks “Were you trained as an electrician”?

The guy says “Yes, I was in the REME. I have all my papers”.

“Brilliant, more points in your favour” replies the interviewer.

Finally the interviewer asks “Are you disabled in any way”?

The guy replies: 'Unfortunately yes……... a mortar round exploded near me and blew my testicles off”.

The interviewer tells the guy “No problem, that’s further points towards employment. OK, I can hire you right now. The hours are from 8am to 4pm. You can start tomorrow. Come in at 10am”.

The ex-Tom is a bit puzzled by this and asks “If the hours are from 8am to 4pm, then why do you want me to come in at 10am”?

“This is the MOD Civil Service, mate”, replies the interviewer. “For the first two hours we sit around scratching our balls....... not really worth you coming in for that”.
