• Management Lesson

    His Phone rang in church by accident during prayers...

    The Pastor scolded him.

    The worshippers admonished him after prayer for interrupting the silence.

    His wife kept on kept on lecturing him on his carelessness till they reached home.

    You could see the shame, embarrassment and humiliation on his face.

    He has never stepped foot in the church ever again.


    That evening, he went to a bar.

    He was still nervous and trembling.

    He spilled his drink on the table by accident.

    The waiter apologized, gave him a napkin to clean himself up.

    The janitor also mopped the floor.

    The female manager offered him a complimentary drink.

    She also gave him a huge hug and kissed him while saying "Don't worry man. Who doesn't make a mistake?"

    He has never stopped going to that bar since then.

    Management Lesson: You can make a difference by how you treat people especially when they make mistakes.
  • Sales Pitch

    Bubba Joe's first military assignment was to a military induction center, and, because he was a good talker, they assigned him the duty of advising new recruits about the government benefits, especially the GI insurance to which they were entitled.

    Before long the Captain in charge of the induction center began noticing that Bubba was getting a 99 percent sign-up for the top GI insurance.

    This was odd, because it would cost these poor inductees nearly $30.00 per month more for their higher coverage than what the government was already granting.
    The Captain decided that he would sit in the back of the room and observe Bubba's sales pitch. Bubba Joe stood up before his latest group of inductees and stated, "If you have the normal GI insurance and go to Iraq and are killed, the government pays your beneficiary $6,000." "If you take out the supplemental GI insurance, which will cost you an additional $30.00 per month, the government pays your beneficiary $200,000." "Now," Bubba concluded, "which bunch do you think they're gonna send into combat first?"
  • Christmas Raffle

    Several days before Halloween, Tom, Dick and Harry were sitting in a bar enjoying a few quiet drinks, when they decided to get in on the Christmas raffle.

    Since the raffle was for charity, they bought five tickets each. When the raffle was drawn a few days later, they each won a prize.

    Tom won the first prize - a year's supply of gourmet spaghetti sauce.

    Dick was the winner of the second prize - a six month supply of extra-long gourmet spaghetti.

    And Harry won the sixth prize - a toilet brush.

    The next time they met at the bar, Harry asked the others how they were enjoying their prizes. "Great," said Tom. "I love spaghetti."

    "Me too," replied Dick.

    "And how's the toilet brush, Harry?"

    "Not so good," Harry groaned, "I reckon I'll go back to toilet paper."
  • A Programmer Husband

    A wife sends her programmer husband for grocery shopping.

    She tells him: I need butter, sugar and cooking oil. Also, get a loaf of bread and if they have eggs, get 6.

    The husband returns with the butter, sugar and cooking oil, as well as 6 loaves of bread.

    The wife asks: Why the hell did you get 6 loaves of bread?

    To which the husband replies: They had eggs.
