The Accountant

A Gloucestershire businessman was hiring for an accounting position and conducted interviews for each of the hopefuls.

The first accountant walked in and started to introduce himself, "I'm here for the accounting position."

The boss asked him, "What's 2+2?"

"4" replied the accountant.

The boss told him to get out. Sad, disappointed, and a little confused, the accountant slowly left the office.

The next candidate then entered and the boss asked, "What's 2+2?".

"4" replied the accountant.

The boss again told him to get out.

Just as confused as the first accountant, the second one left thinking that if the boss is that stupid he didn't want to work there anyway.

The next candidate then entered and the boss asked once again, "What's 2+2?".

The accountant replied, "Anything you want it to be."

The boss said, "You're hired."
