“I wonder how closely they sat next to one another.”




Boudreaux was out of work and found an ad in the paper that said "Electrical engineer needed."

So, he went to the power company and hand delivered his resume.

After reviewing the resume, Mr. Don (da boss) was astounded by Boudreaux's tenacity to apply,even without a formal education.

Well, the power company had a policy that you must take a 10-question test before you can get hired.

There were two people there to take the test that day. One was Mr. Fred, who was a certified electrical engineer. And, of course, Boudreaux was the other.

They each took the test and returned to Mr. Don's office to hand in their test papers.

Mr. Don asked the both of them to wait outside until he was done reviewing the two exams.

After about 10 minutes, Don called them back in and this is how it went.

Don: "Thanks to the both of you for applying for the position. But, we have made our decision and that decision is to hire Fred."

Boudreaux: "What did Fred score on dat test?"

Don: "Ya'll both scored 9 outta ten. You both only missed one question."

Boudreaux: "Mais, why you gonna hire him den?"

Don: "Because on question #7, Fred answered 'I don't know' and you answered 'me neither.'"

Haha. Cheating definitely would not go well on any kind of test.

Cheaters will cheat ... getting caught will generally cost us.  Reminds me of something that happened to me in college.  No. I was not cheating. Someone else got caught cheating off my paper. The professor felt I was facilitating but I did not know the person was eye-balling my paper.
