3 Corporate Lesson

Corporate Lesson 1

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her

shower when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel

and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next
door neighbour. Before she says a word, Bob says, "I'll give you $800 to

drop that towel." 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. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back

When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, "Who was that?" "It was
Bob the next door neighbour," she replies. "Great!" the husband says, "Did
he say anything about the $800 he owes me?"

Moral of the story: - If you share critical information pertaining to

credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position
to prevent avoidable exposure.

Corporate Lesson 2

A priest offered a lift to a Nun. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing
her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After

controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg.

The nun said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?" The priest removed his hand.
But, changing gears, he let his

hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, "Father, remember
Psalm 129?"

The priest apologized "Sorry sister but the flesh is weak."

Arriving at the convent, the nun went on her way. On his arrival at the

church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129.

It said, "Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory."

Moral of the story: -If you are not well informed in your job, you might

miss a great opportunity.

Corporate Lesson 3

A sales rep and 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. The Genie says, "I'll give each of you just one wish."

"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.

"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.
