Random Thought
“When I die, I want to die like my grandfather -- who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.”

A few months ago, there was an opening with the CIA for an assassin. These

highly classified positions are hard to fill, and there’s a lot of testing and

background checks involved before you can even be considered for the position.

After sending some applicants through the background checks, training and

testing, they narrowed the possible choices down to 2 men and a woman, but

only one position was available.

The day came for the final test to see which person would get the extremely

secretive job. The CIA men administering the test took one of the men to a

large metal door and handed him a gun.

We must know that you will follow your instructions no matter what the

circumstances” they explained. “Inside this room, you will find your wife

sitting in a chair. Take this gun and kill her.”

The man got a shocked look on his face and said, “You can’t be serious! I

could never shoot my own wife!” “Well”, says the CIA man, “You’re definitely

not the right man for this job then.”

So they bring the second man to the same door and hand him a gun. “We must

know that you will follow instructions no matter what the circumstances”, they

explained to the second man. “Inside you will find your wife sitting in a

chair. Take this gun and kill her.”

The second man looked a bit shocked, but nevertheless took the gun and went in

the room. All was quiet for about 5 minutes, then the door opened.

The man came out of the room with tears in his eyes. “I tried to shoot her, I

just couldn’t pull the trigger and shoot my wife. I guess I’m not the right

man for the job.” “No” the CIA man replied, “You don’t have what it takes.

Take your wife and go home.”

Now they’re down to the woman left to test.

Again they lead her to the same door to the same room and handed her the same

gun. “We must be sure that you will follow instructions no matter what the

circumstances, this is your final test. Inside you will find your husband

sitting in a chair. Take this gun and kill him.”

The woman took the gun and opened the door. Before the door even closed all

the way, the CIA men heard the gun start firing. One shot after another for 13

shots. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls. This went on for

several minutes, then all went quiet.

The door opened slowly, and there stood the woman. She wiped the sweat from

her brow and said “You guys didn’t tell me the gun was loaded with blanks! I

had to beat him to death with the chair!”
