The Fish

A fisherman from the city was out fishing on a lake in a small boat. He noticed another man in a small boat open his fishing tackle box and take out a mirror. Being curious, the man rowed over and asked, 

"What is the mirror for?"
"That's my secret way to catch fish," said the other man. "Shine the mirror on the top of the water. The fish notice the spot of sun on the water above and they swim to the surface. Then I just reach down and net them and pull them into the boat."
"Wow! Does that really work?"
"You bet it does."
"Would you be interested in selling that mirror? I'll give you Rs. 250/- for it."
"Well, okay."
After the money was transferred, the city fisherman asked, "By the way, how many fish have you caught this week...?"
"You're the sixth," he said.

So, how many fish did your organization catch?

So long, until the next post...

The Cannibals

A big corporation recently hired several cannibals. The HR said during the briefing,"You are all part of our team now. You get all the usual benefits and you can go to the cafeteria to eat, but don't eat any of the other employees". The cannibals promised they would not.

Four weeks later their boss remarked, "You're all working very hard, and I'm satisfied with you. However, one of our secretaries has disappeared. Do any of you know what happened to her?"

The cannibals all shook their heads indicating no.

After the boss had left, the leader of the cannibals said to the others, "Which one of you idiots ate the secretary?"

A hand raised hesitantly, to which the leader of the cannibals shouted, "You fool! For four weeks we've been eating managers and no one noticed, but see what happened now, when you had to go and eat someone important!"

The Burglar

A burglar decided to rob the safe in a store.

On the safe door he was very pleased to find a note reading: "Please don't use dynamite and blow it. The safe is not locked. Just turn the knob."

He did so. Instantly a heavy sandbag fell on him, the entire premises were floodlighted, and alarms started clanging.

Soon the police arrived at the spot. As the police carried him out on a stretcher, he was moaning: "My confidence in human nature has been rudely shaken."

The same is the experience of customers dealing with service companies, they are enticed with so many attractive jargon mesmerizing them, they don't wake up until a huge sandbag falls on them… :)

Moral: Never trust anybody!

So long, until the next post…
