Corporate Lessons

I have flu...so I was not able to go to work...and I've been stuck at home for the past 48 hours with nothing to do. In my attempt to entertain myself, here's what I got...

Hope it lightens up your day somehow...

Corporate Lesson 1

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings.After a few seconds of arguing over which one should go and answer the doorbell, the wife gives up, quickly wraps herself up in a towel and runs downstairs.When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next door neighbour. Before she says a word, Bob says,"I'll give you 800 dollars to drop that towel that you have on."After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob.After a few seconds, Bob hands her 800 dollars and leaves. Confused, but excited about her good fortune,the woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets back to the bathroom, her husband asks from the shower "Who was that?""It was Bob the next door neighbour," she replies."Great," the husband says, "did he say anything about the 800 dollars he owes me?"

Moral of the story: If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk in time with your stakeholders,you may be in a position to prevent avoidable Exposure!

Corporate Lesson 2

A priest was driving along and saw a nun on the side of the road, he stopped and offered her a lift which she accepted. She got in and crossed her legs,forcing her gown to open and reveal a lovely leg. The priest had a look and nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealth fully slid his hand up her leg. The nun looked at him and immediately said, "Father, remember psalm 129?"The priest was flustered and apologized profusely.He forced himself to remove his hand. However, he was unable to remove his eyes from her leg.Further on while changing gear, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again Said,"Father, remember psalm 129?" Once again the priest apologized."Sorry sister but the flesh is weak."Arriving at the convent, the nun got out gave hi ma meaningful glance and went on her way.On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to retrieve a bible and looked up psalm 129. It Said,"Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory."

Moral of the Story: Always be well informed in your job, or you might miss a great opportunity!

Corporate Lesson 3

Usually the executives and staff of the company play basketball. The middle level managers are more interested in Tennis. The top management usually has a preference for Golf.

Finding: As you go up the corporate ladder, the balls reduce in size.

I want you well and feeling tops--BUT, if these three are examples of what you come up with when you're sick and bored, well . . .

I haven't stopped laughing. My son and husband wanted copies they could take to work and share!
