Accident and Interview

Thorn was in a terrible accident at work.  He fell through a floor tile and ripped off both of his ears.  Since he was permanently disfigured, he settled with the company for a rather large sum of money and went on his way.

One day, Thorn decided to invest his money in a small, but growing telecom business.  And, after weeks of negotiations, he bought the company outright.
But, after signing on the dotted line, he realized that he knew nothing about running such a business and quickly set out to hire someone who could do that for him.

The next day he had set up three interviews.  The first guy was great; he knew everything he needed to and was very interesting.  But, at the end of the interview, Thorn asked him, "Do you notice anything different about me?"

The gentleman answered, "Why, yes, I couldn't help but notice you have no ears."

Thorn got very angry and threw him out.

The second interview was with a woman, and she was even better that the first guy.  But he asked her the same question, "Do you notice anything different about me?"

She replied, "Well, you have no ears."

Thorn again was upset and tossed her out.

On the way out, she passed the third guy and said "Listen, whatever you do, don't say he hasn't got any ears.  He's touchy about the ear thing."

"Okay," said the third guy on his way into the office.

Thorn liked the third guy.  He was smart.  And he seemed to be a better business person than the first two put together.  Thorn was anxious, but went ahead and asked the young man the same question, "Do you notice anything different about me?"

To his surprise, the young man answered, "Yes.  You wear contact lenses."

Thorn was shocked, and said, "What an incredibly observant man.  How in the world did you know that?"

The young man replied, "Well, it'd be pretty hard to wear glasses without any ears!"
