Council Job

A bloke goes to council to apply for a job in the office. The  interviewer asks him, “Are you allergic to anything?”

He replies, “Yes caffeine.”
“Have you ever worked for the public service before?”
“Yes I was in the army,” he says. “I was   in Iraq for two tours.”
The interviewer says, “That will give you 5 extra   points toward employment.”
Then he asks, “Are you disabled in any way?”
The guy says, “Yes. A mine exploded next to me when I was there and I  lost both my testicles.”

The interviewer grimaces and then says, “Okay. You’ve got enough points for me to take you on right  away. Our normal hours are from 8am to 4pm but you can start tomorrow at and carry on starting at 10am everyday.”
The bloke is puzzled and asks. “If the work hours are from 8am to 4pm then why don’t you want me here until 10am. I’m not looking for any special treatment  you know.”
“What you have to understand is that this is a council job,” the interviewer says. “For the first two hours, we just stand around drinking coffee and scratching our private parts. There’s no point coming in for that.”
