A junior manager, a senior manager and Moshe, their boss, are on their way to a meeting. On their journey through a park, they come across an oil lamp sticking out of the ground under a bush. They pick it up, rub it, and out pops a genie.
The genie says, “Thank you very much. I normally grant three wishes, but as there are three of you, I can only allow one wish each.”
Without waiting for the others, the eager senior manager shouts, “I want the first wish. I want to be in the Bahamas, on a fast boat, with loads of money and have no worries for the rest of my life.”
POW! And he disappears.
The junior manager can’t keep quiet and shouts, “I want to be in Florida with beautiful girls around me and plenty of good food and champagne.”
KERPOW! And he disappears too.
Moshe the boss then calmly says, “Here’s my wish. I want those two idiots back in my office immediately after lunch.”
Moral: Always allow your boss to speak first.
