There was once a man who had a horrible accident and was injured. Luckily, the only permanent damage he suffered was the amputation of both of his ears. As a result of this unusual handicap, he was very self-conscious.
He received a large sum of money from the insurance company. So he decided to invest it by starting a business. He went shopping and purchased a small computer firm. However, he realized that he had no business knowledge at all, so he decided that he would have to hire someone to run the business. He picked three top B-school graduates and interviewed each of them. The first interview went really well. He liked the guy. His last question for this candidate was, “Do you notice anything unusual about me?”
The guy said, “Now that you mention it, you have no ears.” The man got really upset and struck his name off the list.
The second interview went better than the first. This candidate was had better knowledge. Again, to conclude the interview, the man asked the same question, “Do you notice anything unusual about me?”
This guy also said, “Yes, you have no ears.” The man was really upset again, and struck off the second candidate’s name.
Then he had the third interview. The third candidate was even better than the second, the best out of all of them. Almost certain that he wanted to hire this guy, the man once again asked, “Do you notice anything unusual about me?”
The guy replied “Yeah, you’re wearing contact lenses.”
Surprised, he asked, “Wow! That’s quite perceptive of you! How could you tell?”
The guy burst out laughing and said, “Well, You can’t wear glasses if you don’t have any ears!”
