Accounting Job Interview

Rick, fresh out of accounting school, went to an interview for a job. The company boss asked various questions about his education and experience, but then asked him, "What is three times seven?"

"22," Rick replied. After he left, he double-checked it on his calculator (he knew he should have taken it to the interview!) and realized he wouldn't get the job.

About two weeks later, he got a phone call was offered the job! He accepted, and started work the next day.

He was not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, but was still very curious. The next week he went in and asked why he got the job, even though he got such a simple question wrong. The boss shrugged and said, "Well, you were the closest."
