Bill Gates thanked all the candidates for coming and asked those who do not know Java program to leave. 2000 candidates left the room. Ayodele said to himself, “I do not know Java but I have nothing to lose if I stay. I’ll give it a try.”
Bill Gates asked the candidates who never had experience of managing more than 100 people to leave. 2000 left the room. Ayo said to himself again, “I have never managed anybody but myself but I have nothing to lose if I stay. What can happen to me?” So he stays.
Then Bill Gates asked the candidates who do not have management diploma to leave. 500 people left the room. Ayodele said to himself, “I left school at 15 but what have I to lose?” So he stayed in the room.

Lastly, Bill asked the candidates who do not speak Serb-Croatian to leave. 498 candidates left the room. Ayodele says to himself, “I do not speak Serb-Croatian but what do I have to lose?” So he stays and finds himself with one other candidate. Everyone else has gone.
Bill Gates joined them and said, “Apparently you are the only two candidates who speak Serb-Croatian, so I’d like to hear you have a conversation together in that language.”
