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
are after you?

Employee:
Oh, the Electric Company, Gas Company, Water Company
and the Internet Company!
