Interview for a Signalman

Modon wanted a job as a signalman in the railways. So he went to the interview board.

The inspector in that board asked him this question: “What would you do if you saw 2 trains heading for each other on the SAME track?”
Modon said,” I would switch the points for one of the trains.”

What if the lever broke?”, asked the inspector.
“Then I’d dash down to the signal box”, said Modon. “And use the manual lever there.”

“What if lightning strucks it?”, asked the inspector.
“Then…” Modon continued, “I’d run back into signal box and phone the next signal box.”

“What if the phone was engaged?”
“Well… that case,” perservered Modon, ” I’d rush down out of the box and use the PUBLIC emergency phone at the level of the crossing up there…”

“What would you do if THAT was vandalized?”
“Oh, well then I’d run into the village and get my Uncle Mofiz.”

This puzzled the Inspector, so he asked, ” Why would you do that???”
“Because he’s never seen a train wreck !!”
