The Raise



THE 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 are after you?

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