I only have a few moments for a quick joke...

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.”

"Have you ever been in the military service?"

"Yes," he says, "I was in Iraq for two years."

The interviewer says, "That will give you 5 extra points toward employment."

Then he asks, "Are you disabled in any way?"

The guy says, "Yes. A bomb exploded near me and I lost both my testicles."

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. "For the first two hours, we just stand around drinking coffee and scratching our balls. No point in you coming in for that."


  1. Very funny. This joke is super old, though, because these days we postal employees spend the first two hours commenting on blogs.

    I'm cruising through Denver on my way to San Fran (and back) next week. Wanna rendezvous at the airport? (Watch for an email with more details.)

  2. I wondered where this was going when the guy lost his testicles.

    Well done, sir, well done.

  3. Anonymous9:50 AM

    Bahaha, I laughed! But I also grimaced and even though he's only make believe I felt truly sorry for that poor Veteran.

    I mean imagine being allergic to coffee!

  4. Too funny...And I'm sure it's probably true'ish...About the 1st two hours that is.

  5. *snaps fingers* That's it! I should get a government job! I hate coffee and don't have balls! Yeah!

  6. Good one!!! And to think I'm going in at 7am with my new job. Duh. Why didn't *I* think of THAT?

  7. My CT brother works at the post office. I'm gonna print this and mail it to him. Then I'm sure he's gonna make copies and post it on the walls.

    See what you started??? ; )

  8. haha - good one. :)

  9. even the ladies scratch their balls?
