Equal Opportunity Employer|
local business was
looking for office help. They put a sign in the window, stating the following: HELP
WANTED. Must be able to type, must be good with a computer and must be bilingual. We are
an Equal Opportunity Employer.
A short time afterwards, a Golden trotted up to the window, saw the sign and went inside.
He looked at the receptionist and wagged his tail, then walked over to the sign, looked at
it and whined. Getting the idea, the receptionist got the office manager.
The office manager looked at the Golden and was surprised, to say the least. However, he
looked determined, so he lead him into the office. Inside, the Golden jumped up on the
chair and stared at the manager. The manager said, I cant hire you. The sign
says you have to be able to type. He then jumped down, went to the typewriter and
proceeded to type out a perfect letter. He took out the 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 Golden, The sign says you have to be good with a computer.
The Golden jumped down again & went to the computer. He then demonstrated his
expertise with various programs and produced a sample spreadsheet and database and
presented them to the manager. By this time the manager was totally dumb-founded! He
looked at the Golden and said, I realize that you are a very intelligent dog and
have some interesting abilities. However, I still cant give you the job.
The Golden jumped down and went to a copy of the sign and put his paw on the sentences
that told about being an Equal Opportunity Employer. The manager said, Yes, but the
sign also says that you have to be bilingual. The Golden looked at him straight in
the face and said, MEOW.
