CIA Job Search

The CIA was seeking candidates for the position of field agent. On the day in question they had three applicants to interview. Each applicant was instructed to bring his wife with him to the interview. Before the interview the applicant and his wife were instructed to wait in a small room which was connected to the interview room by a door.

When the applicant's turn came, he was directed to leave his wife in the room and go through the door to the adjoining room for his interview.

The first candidate was a recent college graduate, in his early twenties. He enters the room and takes a seat. A Colt 45 automatic pistol is lying on the desk.

Interviewer: "As you know the CIA is responsible for the security of our nation. This job you are seeking can be difficult and requires unquestioned loyalty and obedience to orders."

Applicant: "I won't have any problem with that. I have just completed four hard years of college and I can do anything."

Interviewer: "Good! Pick up the pistol which is on the desk between us, go into the next room and shoot your wife."

Applicant: "No Way!! I love my wife. We have only been married for a few months and she is most important thing in the world to me. I cannot do that."

Interviewer: "Interview terminated, next applicant."

The next applicant enters the room and sits down. He is a man of about thirty with some experience in law enforcement.

Interviewer: "As you know the CIA is responsible for the security of our nation. This job you are seeking can be difficult and requires unquestioned loyalty and obedience to orders."

Applicant: "That isn't a problem. In my years as a police officer I have learned the value of following orders. I can, and will, do so."

Interviewer: "Good! Pick up the pistol which is on the desk between us, go into the next room and shoot your wife."

Applicant: "You've got to be kidding! I couldn't possibly do that! She is the mother of my children. I love my wife and children. You must be out of your mind!"

Interviewer: "Interview terminated, next applicant."

The final applicant enters the room. He is a man of about forty five, a little gray around the temples, with more than a few miles on him.

Interviewer: "As you know the CIA is responsible for the security of our nation. This job you are seeking can be difficult and requires unquestioned loyalty and obedience to orders."

Applicant: "I can do that!"

Interviewer: "Good! Pick up the pistol which is on the desk between us, go into the next room and shoot your wife."

The applicant picks up the pistol, goes into the next room and two rapid shot are heard. Following a few moments of silence, all hell breaks loose in the room. The sounds of screaming, furniture being destroyed and glass being broken is heard. Finally, the room grows quiet, the door opens and the applicant reenters. His clothing is torn and he is scratched and bloody. It is obvious that he has been in a violent confrontation. He sits down at the desk.

Interviewer: "My God man! What happened?"

Applicant: "Some idiot put blanks in that pistol and I had to strangle her!"
