Break time Joke: A day in the office

My aunt forward this e-mail and well, it was funny to me. 


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 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!
