Ayo was applying for a job as a signalman for a local railroad and was told to meet the rail inspector at the signal box.
On getting there, he realize the inspector was his ex-girlfriend’s Dad.
The inspector decides to give Ayo a tough quiz since he was the one who broke his daughter’s heart and left her weeping for days.
The first question was:
Inspector: What would you do if you realized that two trains were heading towards each other on the same track?
Ayo: I would switch one train to another track.
Inspector: What if the lever broke ?
Ayo: Then I'd run down to the tracks and use the manual lever down there.
Inspector: What if that had been struck by lightning ?
Ayo: I will run back up here and use the phone to call the next signal box.
Inspector: What if the phone was busy ?
Ayo: I will run to the street level and use the public phone near the station.
Inspector: What if that had been vandalized?"
Ayo: In that case, I will run into town and get my brother Johnny.
Inspector: Why would you do that ? What is your brother into ?
Ayo: Well, he's into nothing but has never seen a train crash.
