Another from Merle

A local business looking for office staff put a sign in the window: “Help wanted, must be able to type, must be good with a computer and must be bilingual. We are an equal opportunity employer.”

A little later a dog trotted up, saw the sign and went inside.

He looked at the receptionist and wagged his tail. then walked

over to the sign and whined.

The receptionist got the manager, who looked at the dog and was surprised to say the least. But he dog looked determind, so the manager led him to the office, where the dog jumped up on the chair and stared at the manager.

“I can’t hire you,” the manager said. “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 he 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, where

he showed off his expertise with various programs, produced

a sample spreadsheet and database, and presented them to

the manager.

By this time the manager was totally dumbfounded.

He looked at te dog and said, “I realise 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 sentences

about being an equal opportunity employer.

“Yes, but the sign also says that you have to be bilingual,” the

manager said.

The dog looked him straight in the eye and said : “Meow.”

Someone sent me an email about a goldfish that was bilingual - it barked when the cat got too close - hilarious. ec
