A man joins a big corporate empire as a trainee.
On his first day of work, he dials the number of the pantry and shouts into the phone, “Get me a coffee, quickly!”
The voice on the other side responded, “You idiot, you’ve dialed the wrong extension! Do you know who you’re talking to, dumbo?”
“No,” replied the trainee.
“It’s the CEO of the company, you fool!”
The trainee shouts back, “And do you know who YOU are talking to, you fool?!”
“No,” replied the CEO indignantly.
“Good!” replied the trainee, and put down the phone.
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!
