The hotel manager went to Neil and said, “Thank you for coming to the interview, but we’ve decided to give the job to Sipho.”
“That’s not fair,” Neil said. “We both got 19 questions right! Is this BEE.”
Manager, “I have made my decision not on the correct answers but RATHER on the question you got wrong.”
Neil said, “Tell me now, how would one incorrect answer be better than another???”
Manager: “Simple. On question number 7, Sipho wrote, ‘I don’t know.’ You put down, ‘Neither do I’.“
