What's in a name?

The manager of a large office noticed a new man one day and told him to come into his office. "What's your name?" he asked the new guy.

"Steve," the new guy replied.

The manager scowled, "Look... I don't know what kind of a namby-pamby place you worked before, but I don't call  anyone by their first name. It breeds familiarity and that leads to a breakdown in authority. I refer to my employees by their last name only ... Smith, Jones, Baker ... That's all.  I am to be referred to only as Mr. Watson.  Now that we got that straight, what is your last name?"

The new guy sighed, "Darling. My name is Steve Darling."

"Okay Steve, the next thing I want to tell you is . . . "


One day, a man spotted a lamp by the roadside. He picked it up, rubbed it vigorously and a genie appeared. "I'll grant you your fondest wish," the genie said.  

The man thought for a moment, then said, "I want a spectacular job - a job that no man has ever succeeded at or has ever attempted to do."

"Done!" said the genie. "You're a housewife." (POOF).

Management Lessons

Lesson Number One:

A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A small rabbit saw the crow, and 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. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Management Lesson:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

Lesson Number Two:
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 some ofmy droppings?"  replied the bull. "They're packed with nutrients."   The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave him enough strength to reach the first branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.  Finally, after a fortnight there he was proudly perched at  thetop of the tree. Soon the turkey was spotted by a farmer, who promptly shot him out of the  tree.

Management Lesson: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

Lesson Number Three:

When the body was first made, all the parts wanted to be Boss.

The brain said," I should be Boss because I control the whole body's responses and functions."

The feet said," We should be Boss as we carry the brain about and get him to where he wants to go.

The hands said, "We should be the Boss because we do all the work and earn all the money. "

And so it went on and on with the heart, the lungs andthe eyes until finally the asshole spoke up. All the parts laughed at the idea of the asshole being the Boss. So the asshole went on strike, blocked itself up and refused to work. Within a short time the eyes became crossed, the hands clenched, the feet twitched, the heart and lungs began to panic and the brain fevered. Eventually they all decided that the asshole should be the Boss, so the motion was passed. 
Management Lesson:
You don't need brains to be a Boss - any asshole will do.

Lesson Number Four:
A little bird was flying southfor the winter. It was so cold, the bird froze and fell to the ground in a large field. While it was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile ofcow dung, it began to realize how warm it was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out.
Then he ate him!
Management Lessons:
   1) Not everyone who drops shiton you is your enemy.
   2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your  friend
   3) And when you're in deep shit, keep your mouth shut
