One of the frequent pieces of feedback, since we adopted our newsletter format for production and distribution has been the regret that we have not found a spot, for a contribution to provide a smile (or a giggle).
Let’s change that:
A sales representative, an administration clerk, and their manager were walking to lunch when they found an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a genie appears. The genie says, “I’ll give each of you just one wish”
“Me first! Me first!” says the Sales Representative. “I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world. Within a blink, the Sales Representative was gone.
“Me next! Me next!” says the Administration Clerk. “I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.” Within a blink, the Administration Clerk was gone.
“OK, you’re up,” the genie says to the manager. The manager says, “I want those two back in the office after lunch.”
Is the moral of the story: There is wisdom in hearing what the boss has to say, first?
