Government job

A guy goes to the Post Office to apply for a job. The interviewer asks him, “Are you allergic to anything?

He replies, “Yes, caffeine.  I can’t drink coffee.”

“Ok, Have you ever been in the military service?”

“Yes,” he says, “I was in Iraq for one tour.

” The interviewer says, “That will give you 5 extra points towards employment..” 

Then he asks,  “Are you disabled in any way?”

The guy says, “Yes.  A bomb exploded near me and I lost my one leg.”

The interviewer grimaces and then says, “Okay.  You’ve got enough points for me to hire you right now.

Our normal hours are from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.  You can start tomorrow at 10:00 am, and plan on starting at 10:00 am every day.”

The guy is puzzled and asks, “If the work hours are from 8:00 am to 4:00 PM, why don’t you want me here until 10:00 am?”

“This is a government job”, the interviewer says.

“The first two hours, we just stand around drinking coffee and wasting time. No point in you coming in for that.”
