Unexpected questions asked

    Greetings from the Ridge.
    The nervous young man sat across from Chuck Schnitker and his eyes blinked in confusion. “What, sir?”
    Chuck repeated the question. “When you buy toilet paper, how many rolls do you buy at a time?” Chuck was the manager of our local feed mill and he’d conducted hundreds of job interviews over the years. The young job applicant didn’t know that Schnitker always ended his interviews with this question. The young man swallowed hard then said, “Uh... I never really thought about it. Maybe... I don’t know... six?” Chuck shook his head. “Well, I guess you’ll do, but I was hoping for a better answer.”
