Funny Joke

There were four friends, a doctor, a lawyer, a priest, and a banker. The banker is sick, and knows that he is going to die soon, so he gathers his three closest friends, and hands them each 10,000 dollars. He says, "I believe that whatever I have with me when I die, I will take with me to the afterlife. So I am giving each of you guys this money, and I want you to put it in my coffin when I die."

The friends agreed, and went their separate ways. Finally, the day of the banker's funeral arrived, and the three friends gathered around his coffin. The priest steps up first.

"I'm only put in $9,000, because there were members of my church that were desperately sick, and needed help."

The doctor steps up, "I'm only putting in $8,000, because our hospital needed a new piece of machinery to help save many people."

Finally, the lawyer goes, "I'm ashamed of you guys." He then writes a check for $30,000, drops it in the coffin, and takes out the other money.

Happy Friday

Happy Friday!

Why is this Friday so great? The reason all Fridays are great? The weekend is almost here. 

At most workplaces, Fridays are considered casual day, where you are allowed to wear jeans and a t-shirt, and just be comfy. I think the point of this is to let employees know that yes, you can be casual, but get all your work done or you'll have to come in for a non-casual Saturday.

Personally, my Fridays give me a chance to reflect on my week. Remind me that I've given 100% all week long. (15% Monday, 20% Tuesday, 27% Wednesday, 23% Thursday, and another 15% Friday)

Also, when people come up to me with problems in the workplace, I can say, "First thing Monday morning, we will get right on that." Instead of saying, "Sit down, my assistant will be with you in a moment." (I don't have an assistant)

The other great things about Fridays is that for two whole days, you don't have to deal with those coworkers that aren't quite up to your standards. The small talk guy, the one who flirts with the boss, the one who actually does their work...

Anyways, here's to hoping that your Friday will be better than the rest of the week.
