The CIA had an opening for an assassin. After all the background checks etc, there were 3 final applicants, 2 men and 1 woman.
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 this 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 CIA man said, "You are definitely not the right man for this job."
The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about 5 minutes, then the man came out of the room with tears in his eyes. "I tried, but I cannot kill my wife." The CIA man said, "You don't have what it takes, 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 opened the door. Before the door was completely closed, shots were heard, one shot after the other. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls. After a few more minutes it was 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."
