Once, for a particular job interview, 4 candidates were called in. The first three arrived way ahead of the scheduled time and were waiting in the HR office. The HR representative from the company asked them to submit their resumes and relevant documents they had brought.
The resumes of the three candidates looked very promising. The HR representative wondered where the 4th candidate was.
The fourth candidate walked in the office when it was a couple of minutes for the scheduled time of the interview.
The HR representative asked the 4th candidate: “Can I get your resume and other documents please?”
The 4th candidate looked bedazzled and said: “I haven’t brought anything!”
The HR representative replied: “Well, judging by the credentials of the other three candidates, I don’t think it would have helped if you had brought your documents!”
At the scheduled interview time, the interviewer came to the HR office and addressed the four candidates: “Gentlemen, I will ask you all the same one question one by one and whoever gives the most satisfying answer will be selected for the Job.”
Announcing such, he called the first candidate in to his room and asked: “The one question is, which is the fastest thing in the world?”
The 1st candidate: “Thinking sir!, Just by thinking one can go anywhere faster than anything. Thinking is the fastest thing in the world.”
Interviewer: “Good answer. You may go and wait outside and please send in the 2nd candidate.”
The 2nd candidate came in and the interviewer asked the same question: “Which is the fastest thing in the world?”
The 2nd candidate: “Blinking of the eye sir! We don’t notice when we blink, its faster than perception. Surely, blinking is the fastest thing in the world!”
Interviewer: “That’s a very good answer. You may go and wait outside and please send in the 3rd candidate.”
The 3rd candidate came in and the interviewer asked the same question: “Which is the fastest thing in the world?”
3rd candidate: “Light, sir! The fastest thing in the whole existence is Light! Einstein proved that long ago!”
Interviewer: “Excellent! You may go and wait outside and please send in the 4th candidate.”
The 4th candidate came in and the interviewer asked the same question: “Which is the fastest thing in the world?”
4th candidate: “Sir, the fastest thing in the whole world is Diarrhea.”
Seeing the utter bewilderment on the face of the interviewer, the 4th candidate said again: “Diarrhea sir, Lose Motion…”
Interviewer: “I know. I know. I am just shocked by your answer! But listen gentlemen, the other three candidates said: "Thinking", "Blinking" and "Light" are the fastest things. If you can prove that your answer is better than their answers, I will give you the Job.”
4th candidate: “Sure, Sir. I can prove it.”
Interviewer: “Go ahead”
4th candidate: “Sir, please close your eyes and imagine that you are lying on your bed preparing to fall asleep. As soon as you close your eyes you feel some trouble in your stomach and realize that you must get to the toilet right away; BUT, BEFORE you can Think, Blink or even Switch on The Light, IT’S ALL OVER SIR!”
