    Corporate Lesson 1

    A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up 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 up in a towel and runs downstairs.

    When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor.
    Before she says a word, Bob says, "I'll give you $800 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 neighbor," she replies.

    "Great!" the husband says, "Did he say anything about the $800 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.

    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 apologized profusely. He forced himself to
    remove his hand.

    Changing gear, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once
    again said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?" Once again the priest
    apologized, "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.

    Corporate Lesson 3

    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 the story:
    Always let your boss have the first say.

    Corporate Lesson 4

    A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A small rabbit
    saw the crow, and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing
    all day long?"

    The crow answered, "Sure, why not."

    So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested. All of a
    sudden a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

    Moral of the story:
    To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

    Corporate Lesson 5

    A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to
    the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, "but I haven't got the

    "Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the
    bull. "They're packed with nutrients."
    The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave
    him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.

    The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second
    branch. Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at
    the top of the tree.

    Soon, he was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

    Moral of the story:
    Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there for long.

    Corporate Lesson 6

    A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold
    the bird froze and fell to the ground in a large field.

    While it was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it.
    As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, it began to
    realize how warm it was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He
    lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.

    A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.
    Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow
    dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

    Moral of the story:

    1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.

    2) Not everyone who gets you out of sh-t is your friend.

    3) And when you're in deep sh-t, it's best to keep your mouth shut!
