Well **gger me,no profanity

THE BOSS

Employee: Excuse me sir, may I talk to you?

Boss: Sure, come on in What can I do for you?

Employee: Well sir, as you know, I have been an employee of this prestigious firm for over ten years.

Boss: Yes.

Employee: I won’t beat around the bush. Sir, I would like a raise.
I currently have four companies after me and so I decided to talk to you first.

Boss: A raise? I would love to give you a raise, but this is just not the right time.

Employee: I understand your position, and I know that the current economic down turn has had a negative impact on sales,
But you must also take into consideration my hard work, pro-activeness and loyalty to this company for over a decade…

Boss: Taking into account these factors, and considering 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 holiday.
How does that sound?

Employee: Great! It’s a deal Thank you, sir!

Boss: Before you go, just out of curiosity, what companies are after you?

Employee: Oh, the Electric Company, Gas Company, Water Company and the Mortgage Company!

Poll - the joke is that the boss thinks that the employee is being head-hunted by 4 companies until he reveals that it’s utility companies and mortgage …

Yes Poll 4 companies after the employee for money.

Get it???

The wedding sounds wonderful. You sound so proud of your daughter and I imagine she looked beautiful. As it sounds like you did too.
