    An employee said to his boss, sir, may I talk to you.

    The boss replied, sure, come on in. What can I do for you?

    The employee said, well sir, as you know, I have been an employee of this prestigious firm for over ten years, and I won't beat around the bush. Sir, I would like a raise, I currently have four companies after me, and I decided to talk to you first.

    The boss replied, a raise? I would love to give you a raise, but this is just not the right time.

    The employee replied. I understand your position sir, and I know that the current economic downturn 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.

    The boss paused for a moment and replied, taking into account these factors, and considering I don't want to start a brain drain, I am willing to offer you a ten percent raise and an extra five days of vacation. How does that sound?

    The employee replied. Great ! It's a deal ! Thank you , sir!

    The boss answered, before you go, just out of curiosity, what companies were after you?

    The employee replied, the electric company, gas company, water company and the mortgage company.
