The owner of a manufacturing firm decided to make a surprise tour of the factory. While walking through the warehouse, he noticed a young man lazily leaning against a packing crate.
“Just how much are you being paid?” the owner demanded.
“A hundred dollars a week,” the young man replied.
The owner pulled out his wallet, peeled off five $20 bills and shouted at the young man, “Here is a week’s pay—now get out and don’t come back!”
Without a word, the young man stuffed the money into his pocket and left.
The warehouse manager, standing nearby, stared in amazement.
“Tell me,” the boss asked him, “How long has that guy worked for us?”
“He didn’t work here,” replied the warehouse manager. “He was just the Fed-Ex guy delivering a package.”
