Two business men in NY are sitting
down for a break in
their soon-to-be new store .. as yet, the store isn't
ready -- only a few shelves are set up. One says to the
other, "I bet any minute now some tourist is going to
walk by, put his face to the window and ask what we're
No sooner are the words out of
his mouth when, sure
enough, a curious fellow walks to the window, has a
peek, and in a Southern drawl asks, "What're y'all
sellin' here?" One of the men replies, "Oh! We're
selling assholes here."
Without skipping a beat, the
southern fellow says, "Well,
I see y'all're doing really good, you only got two left!"
Subj: The Monkey Market (S610)
From: ginafm on 10/7/2008
Once upon a time in a place overrun
with monkeys, a man
appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy
monkeys for $10 each.
The villagers, seeing that there
were many monkeys around,
went out to the forest, and started catching them. The man
bought thousands at $10 and as supply started to diminish,
they became harder to catch, so the villagers stopped their
The man then announced that he
would now pay $20 for each
one. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they
started catching monkeys again. But soon the supply
diminished even further and they were ever harder to catch,
so people started going back to their farms and forgot about
monkey catching. The man increased his price to $25 each
and the supply of monkeys became so sparse that it was an
effort to even see a monkey, much less catch
The man now announced that he
would buy monkeys for $50!
However, since he had to go to the city on some business,
his assistant would now buy on his behalf.
While the man was away the assistant
told the villagers.
"Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man
has bought. I will sell them to you at $35 each and when
the man returns from the city, you can sell them to him
for $50 each."
The villagers rounded up all
their savings and bought all
the monkeys. They never saw the man nor his assistant
again and once again there were monkeys everywhere.

Subj: Whom to Lay Off?? (S619b)
From: ginafm on 11/16/2008
As the CFO of this business that
employees 140 people, I
have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama will
be our next President, and that our taxes and government
fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these
increases, I figure that the clients will have to see an
increase in our fees to them of about 8% but since we
cannot increase our fees right now due to the dismal state
of our economy, we will have to lay off six of our employees
This has really been eating at
me for a while, as we believe
we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who will
have to go. So, this is what I did. I strolled through our
parking lot and found 8 Obama bumper stickers on our employees'
cars and have decided these folks will be the first to be laid
off. I can't think of a more fair way to approach this
problem. These folks wanted change, I gave it to them.
Subj: Picking A New CEO (S538c)
From: auntiegah on 5/6/2007
A successful business man was
growing old and knew it was
time to choose a successor to take over the business.
Instead of choosing one of his
directors or his children,
he decided to do something different. He called all the
young executives in his company together.
He said, "It is time for me to
step down and choose the
next CEO. I have decided to choose one of you." The young
executives were shocked, but the boss continued. "I am
going to give each one of you a SEED today - one very
special SEED. I want you to plant the seed, water it, and
come back here one year from today with what you have grown
from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the
plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next
One man, named Jim, was there
that day and he, like the
others, received a seed. He went home and excitedly, told
his wife the story. She helped him get a pot, soil and
compost and he planted the seed. Everyday, he would water
it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three
weeks, some of the other executives began to talk about
their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.
Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew. Three
weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing. By
now, others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn't
have a plant and he felt like a failure. Six months went
by--still nothing in Jim's pot. He just knew he had killed
his seed. Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he
had nothing. Jim didn't say anything to his colleagues,
however. He just kept watering and fertilizing the soil
- He so wanted the seed to grow.
A year finally went by and all
the young executives of the
company brought their plants to the CEO for inspection.
Jim told his wife that he wasn't going to take an empty
pot. But she asked him to be honest about what happened.
Jim felt sick at his stomach, it was going to be the most
embarrassing moment of his life, but he knew his wife was
right. He took his empty pot to the board room. When Jim
arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by
the other executives. They were beautiful--in all shapes
and sizes. Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of
his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!
When the CEO arrived, he surveyed
the room and greeted his
young executives. Jim just tried to hide in the back. "My,
what great plants, trees, and flowers you have grown,"
said the CEO. "Today one of you will be appointed the next
All of a sudden, the CEO spotted
Jim at the back of the
room with his empty pot. He ordered the financial director
to bring him to the front. Jim was terrified. He thought,
"The CEO knows I'm a failure! Maybe he will have me fired!"
When Jim got to the front, the
CEO asked him what had
happened to his seed - Jim told him the story.
The CEO asked everyone to sit
down except Jim. He looked
at Jim, and then announced to the young executives, "Behold
your next Chief Executive! His name is Jim!" Jim couldn't
believe it. Jim couldn't even grow his seed. How could he
be the new CEO the others said?
Then the CEO said, "One year
ago today, I gave everyone in
this room a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it,
water it, and bring it back to me today.
But I gave you all boiled seeds;
they were dead - it was
not possible for them to grow. All of you, except Jim,
have brought me trees and plants and flowers.
When you found that the seed
would not grow, you
substituted another seed for the one I gave you. Jim was
the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a
pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who
will be the new Chief Executive!"
If you plant honesty, you will reap trust
If you plant goodness, you will reap friends
If you plant humility, you will reap greatness
If you plant perseverance, you will reap contentment
If you plant consideration, you will reap perspective
If you plant hard work, you will reap success
If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation
If you plant faith, you will reap a harvest
So be careful what you plant
for it will determine
what you will reap later.

Rick was in his early 50's, retired
and starting a second
career. However, he just couldn't seem to get to work on
time. Every day, 5, 10, 15 minutes late. But he was an
outstanding worker, real sharp, and loved his new job.
So the "Boss" was in a big quandary about how to deal
with it. Finally, one day he called him into the office
for a talk.
"Rick, I have to tell you, I
really like your work ethic,
you do a bang-up job, but you being late so often is quite

What did they say if you came in late there?"
They said: "Good morning, General."

Band of Roving Chief Executives
Spotted Miles from Mexican
SAN ANTONIO, Texas(Reuters) -
Unwilling to wait for their
eventual indictments, the 10,000 remaining CEOs of public
U.S. companies made a break for it yesterday, heading for
the Mexican border, plundering towns and villages along
the way, and writing the entire rampage off as a marketing

Calling themselves the CEOnistas,
the chief executives
were first spotted last night along the Rio Grande River
near Quemado, where they bought each of the town's 320
residents by borrowing against pension fund gains. By
late this morning, the CEOnistas had arbitrarily inflated
Quemado's population to 960, and declared a 200 percent
profit for the fiscal second quarter.
This morning, the outlaws bought
the city of Waco,
transferred its underperforming areas to a private
partnership, and sent a bill to California for $4.5 billion.
Law enforcement officials and
riding posse were noticeably frustrated.
First of all, they're very hard
to find because they
always stand behind their numbers, and the numbers keep
shifting," said posse spokesman Dean Levitt. "And every
time we yell 'Stop in the name of the shareholders!',
they refer us to investor relations. I've been on the
phone all damn morning."
"YOU'LL NEVER AUDIT ME ALIVE!"
The pursuers said they have had
some success, however,
by preying on a common executive weakness. "Last night
we caught about 24 of them by disguising one of our
female officers as a CNBC anchor," said U.S. Border
Patrol spokesperson Janet Lewis. "It was like moths to

of the CEOnistas. "Most of the time we just hear leaves

"but occasionally we'll pick up someone saying, 'I was
totally out of the loop on that.'"
Among former and current CEOs
apprehended with this
method were Computer Associates' Sanjay Kumar, Adelphia's
John Rigas, Enron's Ken Lay, Joseph Nacchio of Qwest,
Joseph Berardino of Arthur Andersen, and every Global
Crossing CEO since 1997. ImClone Systems' Sam Waksal
and Dennis Kozlowski of Tyco were not allowed to join
the CEOnistas as they have already been indicted. So
far, about 50 chief executives have been captured,
including Martha Stewart, who was detained south of El
Paso where she had cut through a barbed-wire fence at
the Zaragosa border crossing off Highway 375.
