All in a day’s work

The boss always scheduled the weekly staff meeting for 4:30 on Friday afternoon. When one of the employees finally got up the nerve to ask why, the boss replied, “Because that’s the only time of the week when none of you want to argue with me.”

In the course of a job interview, Frank’s prospective employer, Mr. Brown, asked him what he considered to be his greatest weakness. Without hesitation, Frank replied that it was his honesty.

Mr. Brown said, “I don’t think honesty is a weakness.”

Frank said, “I don’t give a rat’s ass what you think.”

Harold, a new greeter at WalMart, just couldn’t seem to get to work on time. Apart from his chronic tardiness, he was an excellent worker– immaculately dressed, sharp-minded, and a real credit to the company. One day the boss called him into his office for a talk.

“I like you, Harold,” said the boss. “You do a great job, but you’re always late for work. I understand you’re retired from the armed forces. What did they say if you came in late there?”

Harold replied, “They said, ‘Good morning, General. May I get you coffee, sir?’”

At his job interview, Bill asked what benefits the company offered. The interviewer replied that they offered group health insurance, the cost of which was deducted from each employee’s pay.

Bill said, “My last job had full health coverage and life insurance, and my employer paid all the costs. I also got two weeks’ paid sick leave and three weeks’ paid vacation a year.”

“Wow!” said the interviewer. “Why did you leave a job with such great benefits?”

Bill replied, “The place went bankrupt.”
