    Corporate lesson 1

    A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings.

    After a few seconds of arguing over which one should go and answer the doorbell, the wife gives up, quickly wraps herself up in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next door neighbour.
    Before she says a word, Bob says, "I'll give you 800 dollars to drop that towel that you have on."
    After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob. After a few seconds, Bob hands her 800 dollars and leaves.
    Confused, but excited about her good fortune, the woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets back to the bathroom, her husband asks from the shower "Who was that?"
    "It was Bob the next door neighbour," she replies.
    "Great," the husband says, "did he say anything about the 800 dollars he owes me?"

    Moral of the story: If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk in time with your stakeholders, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.

    Corporate lesson 2

    Usually the staff of the company plays football. The middle level managers are more interested in Tennis. The top management usually has a preference for Golf.

    Moral of the story: As you go up the corporate ladder, the balls reduce in size.

    Corporate Lesson 3

    A sales rep, an administration clerk and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.
    They rub it and a Genie comes out in a puff of smoke. The Genie says, "I usually only grant three wishes, so I'll give each of you just one."
    "Me first! Me first!" says the admin clerk. "I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world." Poof! She's gone.
    In astonishment, "Me next! Me next!" says the sales rep. "I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of pina coladas and the love of my life." Poof! He's gone.
    "OK, you're up," the Genie says to the manager. The manager says, "I want those two back in the office after lunch."

    Moral of story: Always let your boss have the first say

    Corporate Lesson 4:

    A priest offered a lift to a Nun. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her habit to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg.
    The nun said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?"
    The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again.
    The nun once again said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?"
    The priest apologized "Sorry sister but the flesh is weak."
    Arriving at the convent, the nun went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, "Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory."

    Moral of the story: If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.

    Corporate Lesson 5:

    A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A rabbit asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?"
    The crow answered: "Sure, why not."
    So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested.
    A fox jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

    Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very high up.

    Corporate Lesson 6:

    A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, but I haven't got the energy."
    "Well, why don't you nibble on my droppings?" replied the bull. "They're packed with nutrients."
    The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.
    Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

    Moral of the story: ******** might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

    Hope you guys got a laugh out of this, I know I did when I first saw it.
