You Still Want to Be Rescued

The shipwrecked mariner had spent several years on a deserted island.  Then one morning he was thrilled to see a ship offshore and a smaller vessel pulling out toward him.  When the boat grounded on the beach, the offer in charge handed the marooned sailor a bundle of newspapers and told him, “With the captain’s compliments.  He said to read through these and let us know if you still want to be rescued.”

Executive Ability

A business manager, in search of talent within his own organization, passed out a list of questions to his younger workers.  One question asked, “What is your chief reason for believing that you possess executive ability?”

Many of the answers were duplications, but one stood out unequaled.

It read, “I think I would make a very successful executive because I seldom get lonesome, and would not mind working in a private office.”

Someone is trying to buy us out

The chief executive officer of an electronics company called in his public relations director.  “Listen, Wilson.  Someone is trying to buy us out.  It’s your job to get the price of our stock up so it’ll be too expensive for them.  I don’t care how you do it, just do it.”  And he did.

When asked how, he replied, “I started a rumor Wall Street obviously liked.”

“What was that?”

“I told them you were resigning.”
