One afternoon, the boss of an iron company was walking around the factory, doing a weekly check-in to see how his employees were doing and to check on production.
At first, everything seemed fine. All of the employees were working well, and the machines were in perfect condition. The boss was pleased about what he was seeing and made a note of everything.
However, he turned a corner and saw one of the workers causally standing against the wall on his cellphone. The boss was immediately outraged and walked up to the worker.
"Excuse me," the boss said as he approached the worker and asked softly, "how much is your salary?"
The young man was surprised by the personal question. He calmly responded, "It's $2,500 per month, sir. Why?"
Without answering the worker's question, the boos took out his wallet, pulled $2,500, and handed it to the worker. Then he looked at the worker and said:
"I pay people here to work, not to stand around. Now, this is your monthly salary in advance. Get out and don't come back. It is not up for discussion!"

The young man quickly gathered his things and left the factory. The boss then turned to the rest of the workers and yelled, "And that applies to the rest of you. If you're slacking, you can consider yourself fired!"
One of the employees then approached the boss and said, "Listen, sir, I don't want to disrespect you, but do you know who you just fired?"

The boss scoffed and said, "No, and I don't care who he was. He was not working, so I had to fire him. I cannot have slackers in my factory!"
"But he does not work here, sir," the employee responded. "He's a pizza delivery man."
Now that pizza delivery man got a big tip!
