Fresh out of business school, the young man answered a want
ad for an accountant. Now he was being interviewed by a very
nervous man who ran a small business that he had started
"I need someone with an accounting degree," the man said.
"But mainly, I'm looking for someone to do my worrying for
"Excuse me?" the accountant said.
"I worry about a lot of things," the man said. "But I don't want
to have to worry about money. Your job will be to take all the
money worries off my back."
"I see," the accountant said. "And how much does the job
"I'll start you at eighty thousand."
"Eighty thousand dollars!" the accountant exclaimed. "How
can such a small business afford a sum like that?"
"That," the owner said, "is your first worry."
One day a fisherman was lying on a beautiful beach, with his fishing pole propped up in the
sand and his solitary line cast out into the sparkling blue surf. He was enjoying the warmth
of the afternoon sun and the prospect of catching a fish.
About that time, a businessman came walking down the beach, trying to relieve some of the
stress of his workday. He noticed the fisherman sitting on the beach and decided to find out
why this fisherman was fishing instead of working harder to make a living for himself and his
"You aren't going to catch many fish that way," said the businessman to the fisherman, "you
should be working rather than lying on the beach!"
The fisherman looked up at the businessman, smiled and replied, "And what will my reward be?"
"Well, you can get bigger nets and catch more fish!" was the businessman's answer.
"And then what will my reward be?" asked the fisherman, still smiling.
The businessman replied, "You will make money and you'll be able to buy a boat, which will then
result in larger catches of fish!"
"And then what will my reward be?" asked the fisherman again.
The businessman was beginning to get a little irritated with the fisherman's questions. "You
can buy a bigger boat, and hire some people to work for you!" he said.
"And then what will my reward be?" repeated the fisherman.
The businessman was getting angry. "Don't you understand? You can build up a fleet of fishing
boats, sail all over the world, and let all your employees catch fish for you!"
Once again the fisherman asked, "And then what will my reward be?"
The businessman was red with rage and shouted at the fisherman, "Don't you understand that you
can become so rich that you will never have to work for your living again! You can spend all
the rest of your days sitting on this beach, looking at the sunset. You won't have a care in
The fisherman, still smiling, looked up and said, "And what do you think I'm doing right now?"
Not that my wife's the jealous type or anything, but one day at work, I had taken this
temp who was filling in for my secretary to lunch in gratitude for an outstanding job
on a very difficult project. As luck would have it, there was my wife waiting in the
office for my return. The temp, who was truly a ravishing beauty said, "Oh, Mrs. Moore,
I'm so happy to meet you. I'm your husband's new secretary."
Within a single heart beat my wife quietly intoned, "OH ? Really ? Were you ???"
A couple was planning on getting married. Seeing how they didn't
have much money to go on a honeymoon, they decided tojust go back
to their new apartment after the wedding.
The groom had three close friends, that were prone to committing
practical jokes. One being a carpenter, the other a ordinary guy,
and the third a dentist.
They all decided to pull practical jokes on their newly married
friends. The carpenter decided he would cut the slats in the bed
so that when they climbed into bed, the bed would collapse. The
ordinary guy decided to short sheet the bed, so that when they got
into it their feet wouldn't reach the bottom. The dentist chuckled
and wouldn't tell anyone what he planned to do.
A week later the 3 friends all received letters in the mail. "Dear
friends, we didn't mind the fact that when we got into bed, the
bed collapsed, or the guy that short sheeted it, but I'm gonna kill
the bastard that put the novacaine in the vaseline!"
