Things that make me smile #27 – The perks (Mullah Nasruddin story)

Here is what I got out of this:
You may want to get a lot but it has to make sense to the person who is giving it to you. If not, it won’t be long term..

The perks

Mullah Nasrudin was applying for a job.

“Does the company pay for my hospitalization?” he asked.

“No, you pay for it,” the personnel director said. “We take it out of your salary each month.”

“The last place I worked, they paid for it,” said the Mullah.

“That’s unusual,” the personnel man said.

“How much vacation did you get?”

“Six weeks,” replied the Mullah.

“Did you get a bonus?” the personnel man asked.

“Yes,” said the Mullah. “Not only that, they gave us an annual bonus, sent us a turkey on Thanksgiving, gave us the use of a company car and threw a big barbecue for us each year.”

“Why did you leave?” asked the personnel director.

“THEY WENT BUST!” said Mullah.
