New Employee (Humor)|
The manager of a large office approached the new man who had just been hired one day and asked him to come into his office.
"What's your name?" asked the manager when they were in his office.
"John," the new man replied.
"Okay. First rule," the manager said in a stern voice. "Here we don't call anyone by their first names. It breeds familiarity and that leads to a breakdown in authority.
I refer to my employees by last name only - Smith, Jones, Baker - that's all. I am to be referred to as Robinson. Are we clear on that?"
"Yes," the new man said.
"Good," said the manager. "What is your last name?"
"Darling," the man replied. "My name is John Darling."
The manager's face went through a series of twisted expressions. He looked down for a moment, then back up. He continued, "Okay, John, listen..."

Mr. Johnson got himself a new secretary. She was young, sweet, and very polite.
One day while taking dictation, she noticed his fly was open. When leaving the room, she said, 'Mr. Johnson, your barracks door is open.'
He did not understand her remark, but later on he happened to look down and saw that his zipper was open. He decided to have some fun with his secretary.
Calling her in, he asked, 'By the way Miss Jones, when you saw my barracks door was open this morning, did you also notice a soldier standing at attention?'
The secretary, who was quite witty replied, 'Why no sir, all I saw was a little disabled veteran sitting on two duffel bags.'
