Equal Opportunity Employer

A business was looking for office help, so they place 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 trots up to the window, sees the sign and goes inside. After looking at the receptionist and wagging his tail, he then walks over to the sign, looks at it and whines a bit. Finally getting the idea, the receptionist gets the office manager, who is surprised, to say the least. However, the dog looks determined, so he leads him into the office. Inside, the dog jumps up on a chair and stares at the manager. The manager tries to explain: "I can't hire you. The sign says you have to be able to type."

The dog jumps down, goes over to the typewriter and proceeds to type out a perfect letter. Taking out the page, he trots over to the manager and gives it to him, then jumps back up on the chair. The manager is stunned, but then tells the dog, "The sign also says you have to be good with a computer."

The dog jumps down again and goes over to the computer, where he proceeds to enter and execute a perfect spreadsheet that works flawlessly the first time. (And we all know how rare that is!) By this time, the manager is totally dumbfounded! Still, he tries to explain to the dog, "I realise that you are a very intelligent dog and have some interesting abilities. However, I still can't give you the job."

The dog jumps down. Going over to a copy of the sign, he puts his paw on the sentence about being an Equal Opportunity Employer. The manager says, "Yes, but the sign also says that you have to be bilingual."

The dog looks at the manager calmly: "Meow."
