Why Old Men Don't Get Hired

At the job interview:

HR manager: "What is your greatest weakness"?

Old man: "Honesty".

HR manager: "I don't think honesty is a weakness".

Old man: "I don't really give a s**t what you think."

It still makes me laugh when I read it, several days later. It's a little crude, very juvenile, and right on target.
