TODAY’S BLOG

It’s “Funny Friday!”   I got this one from inspireme.net.  I hope it will add another smile or laugh to the beginning of your weekend.

 

FUNNY FRIDAY:  “Request for Salary Increase”

An employee sent this letter to his boss, asking for a salary increase:

 

Dear Bo$$:

In thi$ life, we all need $omething mo$t de$perately.  I think you $hould be under$tanding of the need$ of u$ worker$ who have given $o much $upport, including $weat and $ervice to your company.

I am $ure you will gue$$ what I mean and re$pond $oon.

Your$ $incerely,

Norman $mith

 

The next day, the employee received this response:

 

Dear NOrman:

I kNOw you have been working very hard.  NOwadays, NOthing much has changed.  You must have NOticed that our company is NOt doing NOticeably well as yet.

NOw the newspapers are saying the world’s leading ecoNOmists are NOt sure if if we are headed for aNOther recession.  After the NOvember presidential election, things may get better or worse.

I have NOthing more to add NOw.  You kNOw what I mean.
