Government Job

 A guy goes to the Post Office to apply for a job.

The interviewer asks him, "Are you allergic to anything?

He replies, "Yes, caffeine. I can't drink coffee.

"OK, have you ever been in the military service?

"Yes," he says, "I was in Iraq for one tour.

The interviewer says, "That will give you 5 extra points toward employment." Then he asks, "Are you disabled in any way?

The guy says, "Yes. A bomb exploded near me and I lost both my testicles.

The interviewer grimaces and then says, "Okay. You've got enough points for me to hire you right now. Our normal hours are from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. You can start tomorrow at 10:00 am, and plan on starting at 10:00 am every day.

The guy is puzzled and asks, "If the work hours are from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, why don't you want me here until 10:00 am?"
"This is a government job", the interviewer says. "For the first two hours, we just stand around drinking coffee and scratching our balls. No point in you coming in for that...
