Careful in Workplace

Nowadays how the managers of the companies are tricking their employees. Here's one incident :

A man goes for an interview. The manager is a very witty man, so he began his interview with the man .

MD : How many days are there in a year ?
M : 365, Sometimes 366 .
MD : As this year is a leap year, take it as 366 days.
M : OK, Sir .
MD : How many hours do you work here ?
M : 8 HRS .
MD : What fraction of a day will you work ?
M : 8/24 = 1/3 RD of a day, Sir.
MD : So, how many days will you work ?
M : 1/3 rd of a year, = 366/3, = 122 days .
MD : Will you work on weekends ?
M : No sir .
MD : So, how many weekends are there in a year ?
M : 52 Sundays and 52 Saturdays, = 104 days .
MD : So, how many days would you work ?
M : 122 - 104 = 18 days .
MD : You might fall sick some days, so cut out two weeks. So, how many days are left ?
M : 18 - 14 = 4 days, sir .
MD : Will you come for Christmas, Easter, New year and Good Friday ?
M : No, sir .
MD : So, how many days will you come ?
M : None, sir .
MD : So, get out. You are a foolish man .

Being beaten aback, the man went away, cursing the manager .
So, watch our for these tricky managers, and also share some of the jokes between a interviewer and an employee in the comment box :). Do share if you like it !!

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Boss: Where were you? Employee: Gone for a hair-cut. Boss: During office time . . . Employee: Yes, Sir, hair grow during office time. Boss: But not all of them. Employee: That's right. I did not get tonsured. The remaining ones grew after office.
