Paddy Murphy applied for a job at a famous Irish firm based in Dublin
A Frenchman applied for the same job and since both applicants had similar qualifications, they were asked to take a test by the Manager.
When the results were in, both men had scored 19 out of 20.
The manager went to Murphy and said, "Thank you for coming to the interview, but we've decided to give the Frenchman the job."
Murphy asked, "And why would you be doing that? We both got 19 questions correct. This being Ireland and me being Irish, surely I should get the job."
The Manager replied, "We have made our decision not on the correct answers, but on the question you got wrong."
Murphy exclaimed, "And just how would one incorrect answer be better than another??!!"
"SimpleĒ, said the Manager. ďOn question No. 7, the Frenchman wrote, 'I don't know...'Ē
ď...and you put down, 'Neither do I'."
