A man flying in a hot air balloon suddenly realizes he’s lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below.
He lowers the balloon further and shouts to get directions, “Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?”
The man below says: “Yes. You’re in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field.” “You must work in IT,” says the balloonist.
“I do” replies the man.
“How did you know?” “Well,” says the balloonist, “everything you have told me is technically correct, but It’s of no use to anyone.”
The man below replies, “You must work in management.”
“I do,” replies the balloonist,
“But how’d you know?” “Well”, says the man, “you don’t know where you are or where you’re going, but you expect me to be able to help. You’re in the same position you were before we met, but now it’s my fault.”
Employee Asking for a Raise
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!
