May I have a raise?

Employee:    Excuse me sir, may I talk to you?
oss:            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 vacation time.  How does that sound?

Employee:    Great!   It's a deal!   Thank you, sir!
Boss:            Before you go, just out of curiosity, what companies were after you?

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

Mr. Obama would give you anything you ask for, just say that you'll vote for him.

Lisa said...

Isn't that a sad fact.

Very funny; but all to true for many people today.

Z said...

Yes, it's sad AND funny. Wouldn't have been so sad 10 years ago but, with times like these, with too many people who really have all those companies after them, it's not so hilarious, that's for sure.

Employer: 'Sorry, you can't have a raise. I want to keep all the profits for myself. Go get your own bailout. And my the way, you're fired. Your job has been sent overseas."

Z said...

Lib, you may want to take that overseees thing up with GE and Obama's big JOBS CZAR who has sent over so many jobs.
Get a grip

Liberalmann said...

Wow Z, making crap up again?

You're gonna have to give me some examples for this ludicrous comment. But I'm wondering, do you mean Mitt who flip flopped on every issue and even panders to birthers to get votes? Yeah, right.
