The sales manager was interviewing a girl who had applied for a post in the department. 'You need to be good at figures for this job,' he said.
'How's your mental arithmetic?
'Pardon?' said the girl. The sales manager sighed.
'I'll give you a simple test,' he said. 'If you buy somethingfor £19.50 and sell it for £22.10, do you make a profit or a loss?' The girl thought for a moment and then said,
'Well, I'd make a profit on the pounds but I'd lose on the pence.'
