I came across a very funny story the other day, which I would like to share with you.
A sales rep, an administration clerk and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.
They rub it and a genie comes out; much like in Aladin. The genie says, ‘I’ll give each of you just one wish.’
‘Me first! Me first!’ cried the sales rep. ’I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world’
Puff! She was gone.
The administration clerk came next and said, ‘I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the white beach, with a mojito in one hand, and the love of my life in the other.’ And just like the sales rep, he too was gone in a puff!
‘Okay, you’re up,’ said the genie to the manager. After a bit of deliberation, the manager said, ‘I want those two back at work after lunch.’
Moral of the story: Always let your boss have the first say…
