Dumb.com » Riddles» A man applied for a job in an office. When he arrived at the busy noisy office he was told by an attendant to fill out a form and then wait until he was called. He finished filling out the form and then waited with four other men who had arrived earlier. A few minutes later he was called to the inner office and was given the job. The other candidates were angry but the manager gave them a good reason why the man had been given the job. What was the reason?
Answer: This happened in the 1800s. The man applied for a telegraph operator. Among the background noises was a Morse code saying 'if you understand then walk into the inner office.' It was a test of their alertness and skill. He was the only one who passed.
