Tony was born without ears
Sadly, Tony was born without ears, and though he proved to be successful in
business, his problem annoyed him greatly.
One day he needed to hire a new manager for his company, so he set up three
The first guy was great. He knew everything he needed to know and was very
interesting, but at the end of the interview, Tony asked him, "Do you notice
anything different about me?" "Why, yes, I couldn't help but notice that you
have no ears," came the reply. Tony did not appreciate his honesty and threw
him out of the office
The second interview was with a woman, and she was even better than the
first guy. But he asked her the same question: "Do you notice anything
different about me?"
"Well," she said stammering, "you have no ears."
Tony again got upset and chucked her out in a rage.
The third and final interviewee was the best of the bunch. He was a young
man who had recently earned his MBA. He was smart, he was handsome and he
seemed to be a better businessman than the first two put together.
Tony was anxious, but went ahead and asked the young man the same question:
"Do you notice anything different about me?"
Much to his surprise, the young man answered, "Yes, you wear contact lenses,
Tony was shocked and realised this was an incredibly observant person.
"How in the world did you know that?", he asked.
The young man fell off his chair laughing hysterically and replied,
"Well, it's pretty hard to wear glasses with no ears!!"
