OPINION: A wink can sometimes get you in trouble
A MAN with a winking problem is applying for a position as a sales representative for a large firm.
The interviewer looks over his papers and says:
"This is phenomenal. You've graduated from the best schools, your recommendations are wonderful and your experience is unparalleled.
Normally, we'd hire you without a second thought.
However, a sales representative has a highly visible position, and we're afraid your constant winking will scare off potential customers. I'm sorry, we can't hire you."
"But wait," the man says.
"If I take two aspirin, I'll stop winking!"
"Really? Great! Show me."
So the applicant reaches into his jacket pocket and begins pulling out all sorts of condoms: red condoms, blue condoms, ribbed condoms, flavoured condoms.
Finally, at the bottom, he finds a packet of aspirin.
He tears it open, swallows the pills, and stops winking.
"Well," the interviewer says, "that's all well and good, but this is a respectable company, and we will not have our employees womanising all over the country."
"Womanising? What do you mean? I'm a happily married man."
"Well then, how do you explain all these condoms?"
"Oh, that," he sighs.
"Have you ever walked into a pharmacy, winking, and asked for aspirin?"
