    Two men applied for a job. The first man, John Smith, stated in his application that he had 10 years of experience, that he graduated in 1959 from John F. Kennedy High School, and had graduated from a four year college with top grades, and had several references.

    The second man, Tom Jones stated he had 3 years of experience, and had dropped out of high school. He had only one reference.

    The manager shocked everyone, and hired Tom Jones. Why ?

    The first applicant would have been 77. Even though age discrimination is illegal, he would have been well beyond normal retirement age.

    However, we have no clue as to the probable age of Tom Jones, do we? He didn't say when he dropped out of high school.........
    He could be as old as John, for all we care.........
