Job Interview

“What are your strengths?”
“Well, I am a team player.
The success of my group
is more important to me
than my individual achievements.
I am a very effective listener.”
(I pay attention to my wife
when she is on the verge of leaving me).

“What is you major weakness?
“I am a perfectionist
and sometimes I feel,
I am a workaholic.
I know, I should balance
my professional and personal life better”
(I’d rather be a professional TV watcher
when my wife is traveling).

“What is your expected salary?”
“What is your salary range for this position?”
(I will accept any salary
because my company is downsizing).
