Sir, I would like a raise.

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!
