Chuckles and Chortles

Let's start the week off right...with a smile!

 
 
 


The Job Interview

Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Person asked a young Engineer fresh out of Texas A&M, "And what starting salary were you looking for?"

The Engineer said, "In the neighbourhood of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."

The interviewer said, "Well, what would you say to a package of 5 weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, a company matching retirement fund for 50% of your salary, and a company car leased every 2 years -- say, a red Corvette?"

The Engineer sat up straight and said, "Wow! Are you kidding?" And the interviewer replied, "Yeah, but you started it."

 

 
Have a great day, everyone.

  2. These are great!!! I can so see many disillusioned college kids going into interviews exactly the way that joke was played out.

  9. The T. Rex one made me burst into laughter, and it's realistic that the Isle of Get it Done is detached from all else.

    A good week to you too, Martha.

    1. The T. Rex is the one to think about when you're having a bad day. It always puts a smile on my face. A good week to you, as well!
