A young man thought of the best way to inform his boss of the need for a pay raise. So he came up with a crafty idea, which would eventually leave everyone surprised.


He revealed to his employer that three companies were after him and that he needed a salary increment for him to remain in his job. After a short deliberation, the employer obliged and gave him a five percent raise.

The employee was about to leave his boss's office when he was asked the names of the three companies. The man replied in the affirmative and said:

"The electric, mobile phone, and utility companies."


A new employee had worked at a company for five months and was convinced he was deserving of a huge raise. So he went to his boss, and immediately, a conversation ensued.

The employer asked the man how much of an increase he needed, and the employee requested a raise of $10,000 per year. The boss agreed and even offered him a package of ten weeks' vacation as an add-on.


Moreover, in addition to the vacation, the boss said he was willing to give the employee twenty paid holidays and a silver Cadillac company car, which would be leased every two years.


In disbelief, the employee asked his boss if he was kidding about the package. Then the employer said:

"Yes, but you started it."


A man decided to raise chickens, so he drove to the next farm and purchased fifty chicks to start up his little business. After one month, he returned to the farmer and requested to buy another fifty chicks.

To the surprise of the farmer, the man returned on the third month. Curious, the farmer asked the man if his chicken raising business was successful or not. Then the man responded and said:


"Well, honestly, I have to admit that I'm pretty unsuccessful. Maybe it's because I'm planting them too deep or the wrong way around."
