My Brethren, Ginnal, applied for an engineering position at a Kingston based firm. A Trini Engineer applied for the same job and both applicants having the same qualifications were asked to take a test by the department manager.
Upon completion of the test, the manager went to Ginnal and said, “Thank you for your interest, but we’ve decided to give the man from Trinidad the job.”
Ginnal asked, “Suh why yu do dat? Boat a wi get nine questions rite.
Dis is Jumaika, and me is Jumaikan, A me shudda get de wuk!”
The manager said, “We have made our decision, not on the correct answers, but rather on the question that you both missed.”
Ginnal asked, “An how in the name of Jesus yu decide sey one wrong answer betta dan de adda?
“The manager replied,
“Simple. The Trini boy put down on question #5, ‘I don’t know.’ You
put down, ‘Me no know eeda.'”
