Obviously, I don’t have anything useful to post…

Bill Gates organized an enormous session to recruit a new Chairman for Microsoft Europe.

5000 candidates assembled in a large room. One candidate is MARIO DIMAYUGA.

Bill Gates: Thank you for coming. Those who do not know JAVA may leave. 2000 people left the room.

MARIO says to himself, “I do not know JAVA but I have nothing to lose if I stay. I’ll give it a try.”

Bill Gates: Candidates who never had experience of managing more than 100 people may leave. 2000 people left the room.

Mario says to himself, “I never managed anybody but myself but I have nothing to lose if I stay. What can happen to me?” So he stays.

Bill Gates: Candidates who do not have management diplomas may leave.

500 people left the room..

Mario says to himself, “I left school at 15 but what have I got to lose?” So he stays in the room.

Lastly, Bill Gates asked the candidates who do not speak Serbo-Croat to leave. 498 people left the room.

Mario says to himself, “I do not speak one word of Serbo-Croat but what do I have to lose?”

So he stays and finds himself with one other candidate. Everyone else has gone.

Bill Gates joined them and said “Apparently you two are the only candidates who speak Serbo-Croat, so I’d now like to hear you converse in that language.”

Calmly, Mario turns to the other candidate and says, “Kumusta ka, pare ko.”

The other candidate answers, “Mabuti naman, ikaw?”

(Thanks to Carrie for the joke!)

My name is Terrie. I write for a living and blog for pleasure. Some days, I get up in the morning and know precisely what kind of day it is. At other times, I get knocked over for a loop. People seem to like confiding in me. When I was younger, I thought I knew everything and can tell you what you need to do if you ask me. Now that I'm older, I realize I don't know anything. That's been my motivation for the blog and for writing. To figure out the unknown and unknowable.
