What is Two and Two?

A business man was interviewing applicants for the position of   divisional  manager. He devised a test to select the most suitable person for the   job. He  asked each applicant, "What is two and two?"
The first interviewee   was a  journalist. His answer was "Twenty-two."
The second applicant was an  engineer. He pulled out a slide rule and showed the answer to be between   3.999  and 4.001.
The next person was a lawyer. He stated that in the case   of  Jenkins v Brown, two and two was proven to be four.
The last   applicant was an  accountant. The business man asked him, "How much is two and two?" The  accountant got up from his chair, went over to the door and closed it   then came  back and sat down. He leaned across the desk and said in a low   voice..."How much  do you want it to be?"
He got the job.
