The earless interviewer

Job search

Three guys go for a job interview. The first one goes in for his interview and the interviewer asks, “What’s the first thing you see when you look at me?” The guy replies, “That’s not too difficult. You don’t have any ears.”  The interviewer says, “That’s it, get out. I don’t want to see you around here again.”

The second man takes his turn and is asked the same question. The applicant replies, “Um, you’ve not got any ears.” The interviewer throws the guy out, cursing and yelling that he’ll never get a job with his company.

As he is leaving, the second guy warns the third guy. “Listen man, whatever you do, don’t say he hasn’t got any ears. He’s so touchy with the ear thing.” “Okay,” said man on his way into the office. 

Once inside he is told, “Name the first thing you notice when you look at me.” The guy answers, “That’s easy, you wear contacts.” The interviewer was flabbergasted, “How on earth did you know that, son?” “What? Are you stupid? You can’t wear glasses, you’ve got no ears!”
