Sunday’s Piece

A girl being interviewed for a job was asked if she had any particular talents and replied that she had won several prizes in crossword puzzles and slogan contests. “That sounds good”, the manager told her, “but we want somebody who will be smart during office hours.”

“Ah,” she explained brightly, “this was during office hours.”
