Yeah I Can Do That

Working in HR back in the day I was left to interview candidates for a labour intense position, I had seen quite a number when a particular candidate caught my attention, he was about 50, had one glass eye, three fingers missing from his right hand due to an accident with a compactor and quite a severe limp from an injury sustained when lifting pallets.  We discussed the position and what would be required of him and he said "I can do that,......  yeah I can do that,........ no problem, I can do that"  Well we are getting to the end of the interview and I asked if he considered himself to have a disability and he thought about it for a moment and said "Well yes, I am asthmatic".  He got the job and was bloody good at it too from what I can remember.
