Historical Application

Steinberg needs a job, and has no qualms about inventing the necessary qualifications to get it. He reasons that once he finds work, he will impress the boss so much that everything will be forgiven. After a successful initial interview with the Encyclopedia of American History, he is called back to meet the Sales Manager.

"You say you have experience selling books?" the manager asks.

"Oh yes, lots of it," replies Steinberg

"And you say you have a master's in American history from the University of Michigan?" the manager asks.

"That is correct," replies Steinberg. "American history is my field of study."

"Well, then," says the sales manager. "With these qualifications, as soon as I can complete this form, we can get you started in our firm."

While the sales manager is making a few notations, Steinberg, obviously pleased with himself, begins to look around the room. Steinberg notices pictures of Washington and Lincoln on the wall. Pointing to the portraits, Steinberg turns to the sales manager and says, "Fine-looking men. Your partners?"
