Big boss, af­ter com­pa­ny-wide sales meet­ing: Are there any ques­tions?
Em­ploy­ee #1: Yeah — how come all of a sud­den the so­da ma­chine on­ly gives back one quar­ter from a dol­lar?
Big boss: How much?
Em­ploy­ee #1: Just one quar­ter.
Big boss: Did it used to give more?
Em­ploy­ee #1: Yes, I used to get two back.
Em­ploy­ee #2: So­da is 75 cents.
Em­ploy­ee #1: I’ve been here for 13 years and it’s been the same — I al­ways get two quar­ters back.
Em­ploy­ee #2: I’ve been here for two years and it’s been 75 cents for at least that long. Maybe the ma­chine was bro­ken.
Em­ploy­ee #1: No, it was­n’t bro­ken!
Big boss: You have to stop now.
