Bubba's employment test

 Bubba----applied for an engineering position at a Lake Charles refinery. 
A Yankee applied for the same job and both applicants having the same qualifications were asked to take a test by the manager.
Upon completion of the test, both men only missed one of the questions. 
The manager went to Bubba ! and said : "Thank you for your interest but we've decided to give the Yankee the job."
Bubba asked: "And why are you giving him the job? We both got nine questions correct. This being Louisiana, and me being a Southern boy, I should get the job!"
The manager said: "We have made our decision not on the correct  answers, but rather on the one question that you both missed."
Bubba then asked: "And just how would one incorrect answer be better than the other?"
The manager replied: "Bubba, it's like this... on question #4, the  Yankee put down, "I don't know.", and you put down, "Neither do I." 

Thanks Donnie Mac
