Raises the stakes.

Editor’s note:Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:

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 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!”
