    Talking Corporate lesson plan Friday # 2

    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 neighbor. 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 neighbor," 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
    A priest was driving along and saw a nun on the side of the road, he stopped and offered her a lift which she accepted. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to open and reveal a lovely leg. The priest had a look and nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun looked at him and immediately said, "Father, remember Psalm 129." The priest was flustered and apologized profusely. He forced himself to remove his hand.
    However, he was unable to remove his eyes from her leg. Further on while changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again.
    The nun once again said, "Father, remember Psalm 129."
    Once again the priest apologized. "Sorry, Sister, but the flesh is weak."
    Arriving at the convent, the nun got out, gave him a meaningful glance and went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to retrieve a Bible and looked up Psalm 129. It said, "Go forth and seek; further up, you will find glory."

    Moral of the story:
    Always be well informed in your job, or you may miss a great opportunity.
    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 one wish each."
    "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 the story:
    Always let your boss have the first say.
