The power of observation

As part of a job interview for policemen, the applicants are separately shown a profile picture of a man. They are they told by the interviewer: "The job that you are applying for requires powers of observation. Make one observation about this man."

The first applicant notes that this man has just one ear. "Get out!" screams the interviewer.

The second applicant also says that this man has one ear, and the interviewer again screams at him to get out.

Then the third applicant gets up to go in for his interview. The first two applicants warn him, "The guy that is giving the interview doesn't like to hear that the man in the picture has one ear."

"Thanks for the tip," says the third applicant.

So the third applicant enters, stares at the picture for a while and finally concludes, "This man wears contact lenses."

The interviewer is impressed. "Excellent observation. Tell me, how could you tell?"

So the guy says, "Well, this man has just one ear, how could he wear glasses?"
