Need A Raise?  Read On…………

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!

 

 

Ain’t that the truth these days!
