Chocolate (a poem)

A little bit of chocolate
Will make you feel much better
When your insurer sends you
A claims rejection letter.

If you have lost your job
or have come down with the flu,
A little bit of chocolate
Will help you make it through.

A little bit is good
But a lot is not wise.
’cause you will have to wear
A bigger clothing size!

Don’t throw a job interview

My mother wanted me to go for a job interview for a job which I did not think was suitable for me, so I decided to throw the interview.  I knew all the right ways to go about a job interview so I did the opposite. I demanded more pay than they were offering and boldly asked about benefits.  I felt sure that the interviewer would not want to employ me.  Guess what? He said that’s great, we need a person who can stand up for themselves in this job! I got the job.

Two wrongs don’t make a right (except in my job application mathematics test)

I applied for a job and I was given a simple mathematics test.  Alas hardly any mathematics test is simple for me because I am what you would call in politically correct terms mathematically challenged, or in other terms a mathematical failure. I took the test and memorized what the questions were and my answers.  Later when I went home I slowly worked out the test again. I passed the test and in the question that got me through the pass mark I made two errors in working out the answer. These two errors cancelled out each other and I got the right answer!!!
