A sales representative, 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. The Genie says, “I’ll give each of you just one wish.”
“Me first! Me first!” says the administration clerk. “I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.” Puff! She’s gone.
“Me next! Me next!” says the sales representative. “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.” Puff! 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.
So far the jobs I did I followed above rules. I always let him say what he wanted and I was the last to comment. That may put a bad impression at start that you don’t know anything. But slowly the boss of your work realizes and understands. Another advantage is that troubles by his decisions will not be blamed upon you. That’s for sure. Anyone starting or joining first job make a note of this.
