Job interview at the post office

I stopped by the Los Angeles Post Office yesterday to apply for a job.

The interviewer asked me, "Are you allergic to anything?"

I said, "Yes, caffeine. I can't drink coffee."

"Ok, have you ever been in the military service?"
"Yes, I was in Iraq for one tour."

The interviewer said to me, "That will give you 5 extra points toward employment."

Then he asked, "Are you disabled in any way?"

I said, "Yes. A bomb exploded near me and I lost both my testicles."

The interviewer grimaced and then said,

"OK. You've got enough points for me to hire you right now.

Our normal hours are 8 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

You can start tomorrow at 10 a.m., and plan on starting at 10 a.m. everyday."

I was puzzled and asked,

"If the work hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., why don't you want me here at 10 a.m.?"

"This is a government job", the interviewer said,

"For the first two hours, we just stand around drinking coffee and scratching our balls.

No point in you coming in for that."
