you getting monkeys is not just with hires. Goes for vendors, contractors, third parties…
This is for the managers and executives priding on their ability to squeeze every freebie, concession and discount out of their beleaguered vendors.
Here we go:
The headman from the painting cum landscaping company was speaking with the hard-driving customer about the job awarded to them.
In the first room, she said she would like a pale blue. The contractor wrote this down and went to the window, opened it, and yelled out “GREEN SIDE UP!”
In the second room, she told the painter she would like it painted in a soft yellow. He wrote this on his pad, walked to the window, opened it, and yelled “GREEN SIDE UP!”
The lady was somewhat curious but she said nothing. In the third room, she said she would like it painted a warm rose color. The painter wrote this down, walked to the window, opened it and yelled “GREEN SIDE UP!”
The perplexed lady then asked him, “Here I’m telling you what to do and you keep yelling ‘green side up’?”
“I’m sorry,” came the reply. “them…are laying sod in the front and around.”
