Applying to work at Cairns Regional Council

Believe it or not, a faithful Blog buddy emailed this "true story" in to me today. I'm duty-bound, under strict conditions of my publishing agreement with Council, to post this for all to read.

This bloke I know went into Cairns Regional Council last week to apply for a job.
The interviewer asks him, 'Are you allergic to anything?'
'Yes - caffeine', he said.
'Have you ever been in the services?'
'Yes,' he says. 'I was in Iraq for a year.'
The interviewer says, 'That will give you 5 extra points toward employment.'
He then asks, 'Are you disabled in any way?
My friend says, 'Yes bomb exploded near me and blew my testicles off.'
The interviewer tells my mate... 'OK, in that case, I can hire you right now.. Normal hours are from 8am to 2 pm'
'You can start tomorrow at 10am - and plan on starting at 10 every day.'
The guy is puzzled and says, 'If the hours are from 8 to 2, why don't you want me to be here before 10?'
'This is a council job,' the interviewer says. 'For the first two hours we just stand around drinking coffee and scratching our balls. No point in you coming in for that.'

True story.
