View Full Version : Why I sacked my secretary

20th Apr 2005, 15:46
Two weeks ago was my 45th birthday and I wasn't feeling too good that morning.

I went to breakfast knowing my wife would be pleasant and say,"Happy Birthday!" and probably have a present for me. As it turned out, she didn't even say good morning, let Alone any happy birthday. I thought, well, that's wives for you, the children will remember... The children came in to breakfast and didn't say a word. So when I left for the office, I was feeling pretty low and despondent...

As I walked into my office, my secretary Janet said, "Good morning,Boss. Happy Birthday!"

And I felt a little better that someone had remembered. I worked until noon, then Janet knocked on my door and said,"You know,it's such a beautiful day outside, and it's your birthday, let's go to lunch, just you and me." I said, "By George, that's the greatest thing I've heard All day. Let's go!" We went to lunch. We didn't go where we normally go; instead we went out to a private little place.

We had two martinis and enjoyed lunch tremendously. On the way back to the office, she said, "You know, it's such a beautiful day. We don't need to go back to the office, do we?"

I said, "No, I guess not." She said, "Let's go to my apartment." After arriving at her apartment she said, "Boss, if you don't mind, I think I'll go into the bedroom and slip into something more comfortable"

She went into the bedroom and, in about six minutes, she came out carrying a huge birthday cake..... - followed by my wife, children,and dozens of our friends, all singing Happy Birthday.

And I just sat there -

on the couch -

Plagiarism - passing off another's work as one's own - is one of the worst of crimes a person can commit. It demeans the writer and shows him to be bereft of original thought preferring instead to hide behind the genius of others far more capable.

PS: I copied that from a book wot I read!
