Smith reaches into his supervisor’s office for a little discussion.
– Boss, my wife and I are about to start some heavy house cleaning tomorrow. She wants me to handle the garage and attic, so I have to move everything around.
– I am sorry, Smith, but I cannot give you the day off because we are short handed.
– Thank you very much, boss. I knew I could count on you!
A young executive was leaving the office late due to some extra work when he saw the CEO standing in front of the shredder and staring at it while holding a paper in his hand. The CEO spotted him and asked for a favour.
– Listen, this is a quite important document and my secretary has already left the office. Can you make this machine work?
The young executive turned the machine on, then inserted the document. He pressed the start button, while the machine ate it almost instantly. The CEO happily reacted.
