The CIA had an opening for an assassin.
After all the background checks, interviews
and testing were done, there were three
finalists: two men and a woman.
For the final test, the CIA agents 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.
Inside the room you will find your wife sitting
in a chair. Kill her.
The man said “You can’t be serious. I could
never shoot my wife”. The agent said, “Then
you are not the right man for this job.”
“Take your wife and go home”.
The second man was given the same
instructions. He took the gun and went into the
room. All was quiet for about five minutes.
The man came out with tears in his eyes,
“I tried, but I can’t kill my wife.”
The agent said, “You don’t have what it takes, so take
your wife and go home”
Finally, it was the woman’s turn. She was given
the same instructions: to kill her husband.
She took the gun and went into the room. Shots
were heard one after another. They heard screaming,
crashing, and banging on the walls.
After a few minutes, all was quiet. The door opened
slowly and there stood the woman, wiping sweat from
“The gun was loaded with blanks” she said,
I had to KILL him with the chair…
