This employee needed a raise so he had a big talk with the boss that we all hate having. But this guy had a trick up his sleeve.
Employee: Excuse me, sir, may I talk to you?
Boss: Sure, come in. What can I do for you?
Employee: Well sir, as you know, I have been an employee of this reputable company for over ten years.
Boss: Yes, and we’re glad to have you here.
Employee: I won’t beat around the bush. Sir, I would like a raise. I currently have four companies following me so I decided to talk to you first.
Boss: A raise? I would love to give you a raise but now is just not the right time.
Employee: I understand your position and I know these are tough times economically, but you also have to take into consideration my hard work, pro-activeness, and loyalty to this company for over a decade. I want to continue working here, but that needs to go both ways.
Boss: Considering these factors and since I don’t want to start a brain drain, I’m willing to offer you a ten percent raise and an extra five days of vacation time. How does that sound?
Employee: Great! It’s a deal! Thank you, sir!
Boss: Before leaving, just out of curiosity, which companies were after you?
Employee: Oh, the Electric Company, Gas Company, Water Company, and the Mortgage Company!
A deal’s a deal.
LOL! SO FUNNY!
Hope this joke will make you smile! Have a nice day!
