The Raise

Employee
Excuse me sir, may I talk to you?

Boss
Sure… 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 per cent 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 are after you?

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