A manager was complaining in a staff meeting the other day that he wasn't getting any respect. Later that morning he went out and got a small sign that read, "I'm the Boss." He then taped it to his office door.
Later that day when he returned from lunch, he found that someone had taped a note to the sign that said: "Your wife called. She wants you to bring her sign back."
Three boys walked into a candy store. The store owner asked the first boy what he wanted. He answered, "I would like 25 cents worth of licorice."
The licorice was on the top shelf so the owner had to go to the back of the store to get a ladder, which didn't make him happy at all. He got the licorice and before he served the next boy he put the ladder up.
Then he came back and asked the next boy what he wanted. He answered, "I would like 25 cents worth of licorice."
The owner was really upset now not thinking to ask the next boy if he wanted licorice or not. So after he had gotten the ladder and the licorice and before he put the ladder away he asked the third boy if he would also like 25 cents worth of licorice. "No, but..."
"No buts about it kid. Yes or no"
So the owner put the ladder away and then came and asked the last boy what he wanted. He said, "I'd like 20 cents worth of licorice, please."
