A CEO is filling an accounting position.
The first applicant walks in, introduces himself, and starts to sit down.
Before he can, the boss barks, “What’s two plus two?”
The applicant politely answers, “Four.”
“Get out!” the CEO yells.
Confused, the applicant leaves and a second one comes in.
The same test ensues. The same answer is given, and the second applicant is sent packing.
The third applicant, having watched the revolving door, is barely in the room when the boss yells out, “What’s two plus two?”
Instantly, the man answers, “Anything you want it to be, sir.”
“Welcome aboard,” the boss replies.
