During an interview, the interviewer ordered hot coffee for the candidate to relieve the stress. The coffee was kept before him. After a minute, the interviewer asked him, 'What is before you?' He replied 'Tea'.
The candidate was selected immediately.
Of course if the answer was coffee, he would have never asked such an easy and lame question. By saying you he meant the alphabet 'U' and as 'T' comes before U, he was impressed by the answer and selected the candidate.
