THE RAI$E
 
   

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!
