A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing her
shower when the doorbell rings. After a few seconds of arguing over which
one should go and answer the doorbell, the wife gives up, 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 dollars to drop that
towel that you have on." 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.
Confused, but excited about her good fortune, the woman wraps back
up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets back to the
bathroom, her husband asks from the shower "Who was that?" "It was Bob
the next door neighbour," she replies. "Great," the husband says, "did he
say
anything about the 800 dollars he owes me?"
Moral of the story: If you share critical information pertaining to
credit and risk in time with your stakeholders, you may be in a position
to prevent avoidable exposure.

Enjoy!

Corporate lesson 2
A priest was driving along and saw a nun on the side of the road;
he stopped and offered her a lift, which she accepted. She got in and
crossed her legs, forcing her gown to open and reveal a lovely leg. The
priest had a look and nearly had an accident. After controlling the car,
he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun looked at him and
immediately said, "Father, remember psalm 129?" The priest was flustered and
apologised profusely. He forced himself to remove his hand. However, he was
unable to remove his eyes from her leg.
Further on, while changing gear, he let his hand slide up her leg
again. The nun once again said, "Father, remember psalm 129?" Once again
the priest apologised." Sorry sister but the flesh is weak." Arriving at
the convent, the nun got out gave him a meaningful glance and went on her
way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to retrieve a bible
and looked up psalm 129. It Said, "Go forth and seek, further up, you will
find glory."
Moral of the story: Always be well informed in your job, or you
might miss a great opportunity!

Enjoy!

A sales rep, 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 in a puff of smoke.The Genie says, "I usually only grant three wishes,
so
I'll give each of you just one."
"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.
In astonishment, "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 story: Always let your boss have the first say.

Enjoy!
