An employee went to speak to his boss. "Excuse me sir, may I talk to you?"

"Sure come on in. What can I do for you?" the boss said.

Well sir, as you know, I have been an employee of this firm for over ten years."


"I won't beat around the bush," the employee said. "Sir, I would like a raise. I currently have four companies after me and so I decided to talk to you first. I understand your position, and I know that the current economic downturn 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."

The boss answered: "Taking into account these factors and considering I don't want to start a brain drain, I am willing to offer you a 10 percent raise and an extra five days of vacation time. How does that sound?"

"Great! It's a deal! Thank your, sir!"

"Before you go, just out of curiosity, what companies were after you?" the boss asked.

"Oh, the electric company, gas company, water company and the mortgage company!"
