The Applicant

A business was looking for office help. They
put a sign in
the window, stating the following:


Must be able to type, have computer skills, and be
bilingual. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.

A dog trotted up to the window, saw the sign and went
inside. He looked at the receptionist and wagged his tail,
then walked over to the sign, looked at it and whined a bit.

Getting the idea, the receptionist got the office manager. The
office manager looked at the dog and was surprised, to say
the least. However, the dog looked determined, so he led him
into the office. Inside, the dog jumped up on a chair and stared
at the manager. The manager said “I can’t hire you. The sign
says you have to be able to type.”

The dog jumped down, went to the typewriter and proceeded
to type out a perfect letter. He took out the page and trotted
over to the manager and gave it to him, then jumped back up
on the chair.

The manager was stunned, but then told the dog, “The sign
also says you have to be good with a computer.”

The dog jumped down again and went to the computer. The
dog proceeded to enter and execute a perfect spreadsheet
that worked flawlessly the first time.

By this time, the manager was totally dumb-founded! He
looked at the dog and said, “I realize that you are a very
intelligent dog and have some interesting abilities. However,
I still can’t give you the job.”

The dog jumped down and went over to a copy of the sign
and put his paw on the sentence about being an Equal
Opportunity Employer.

The manager said “Yes, but the sign also says that you
have to be bilingual.” The dog looked at that manager calmly
and said, “Meow.”

Each generation from the beginning of our country has contributed to what our country has become. By the same token, no one is perfect. Consequently, each generation has done and will continue to perform acts that it would have been better if some other course of action was taken.
The baby boomers have contributed much and have been blamed for the decline of America. What is the true story?
