A young executive was leaving the office late one evening when he found the CEO standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand.

“Listen,” said the CEO, “this is a very sensitive and important document here, and my secretary has gone for the night. Can you make this thing work for me?”

“Certainly,” said the young executive. He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.

“Excellent, excellent!” said the CEO, as his paper disappeared inside the machine. “I just need one copy…”

    How did he get to be CEO with an IQ of about 30?

    Uh-oh… and I bet the young executive gets the blame!

    Hmm…perhaps it’s time for the young exec to dust off the old CV…

    Oh the pitfalls of unclear communication! Happens all too often. 🙂 Very good illustration of the same.

    Haha, that’s exactly how it works in the corporate world. The dumber you are, the higher you climb. The only skills you need are brown-nosing and a lot of bull-sh&^tting.

    I bet you that actually happened to someone!


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
