CIA and stockbrokers…
The CIA had an opening for a new agent. After all of the background checks, interviews, and testing were done there were three finalists – a mathematician, a doctor and a stockbroker.
For the final test, the CIA agents took the mathematician to a large metal door and handed him a gun. “We must know that you will follow your instructions, no matter what the circumstances. Behind this door you will find your wife sitting in a chair. You have to kill her!” The mathematician said, “You can’t be serious. I could never shoot my wife.” The agent replies, “Then you’re not the right man for this job.”
The doctor was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about five minutes. Then the doctor came out with tears in his eyes. “I tried, but I can’t kill my wife.” The agent replies, “You don’t have what it takes. Take your wife and go home.”
Finally, it was the stockbroker’s turn. He took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one shot after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls. After a few minutes, all was quiet.
The door opened slowly and there stood the stockbroker. He wiped the sweat from his brow and said, “You guys didn’t tell me the gun was loaded with blanks. So I had to beat her to death with the chair!”
