|A Gujarati man applies for a Job at Wal-Mart. An office manager at Wal-Mart was given the task of hiring an individual to fill a
job opening. After sorting through a stack of resumes he found four people who were equally qualified; an American, a
Russian, an Australian and an Indian. He decided to call the four in and ask them only one question.
Their answer would determine which of them would get the job.
The day came and as the four sat around the conference room
table the interviewer asked, 'What is the fastest thing you know?'
Dave, the American, replied, 'A THOUGHT. It just pops into your head. There's no warning that it's on the way; it's just there.
A thought is the fastest thing I know of.' 'That's very good!' replied the interviewer.
'And now you sir?' he asked Vladimir, the Russian. 'Hmm.... let me see. A blink! It comes and goes and you don't know that it
ever happened. A BLINK is the fastest thing I know.' 'Excellent!' said the interviewer.. 'The blink of an eye, that's a very
popular cliché for speed.'
He then turned to George, the Australian who was contemplating his reply. Well, out at my dad's ranch, you step out of the
house and on the wall there's a light switch. When you flip that switch, way out across the pasture the light in the barn
comes on. Yep, TURNING ON A LIGHT is the fastest thing I can think of. 'The interviewer was very impressed with the third
answer and thought he had found his man. 'It's hard to beat the speed of light' he said.
Turning to Patel, the Indian, the fourth and final man, the interviewer posed the same question. Patel replied, 'Apter herring
da preybyus ansers sir, et's obyus to me dat the fastest thing is Diarrhea!' 'WHAT!?' said the interviewer, stunned by the
response. The others were already giggling in their seats...'Oh, I can expleyn sir,.'
said Patel, 'You see, sir, da ader day my tummy was peeling bad and so I run so fast to the batrum, but before I could THINK,
BLINK, or TURN ON THE LIGHT, I had alreydi done it in my pants!
'Patel is now the new 'Greeter' at Wal-Mart
