CORPORATE LESSON # 1
A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her
shower & the doorbell rings. After a few seconds of arguing over who 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 just 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. Bob has a close look at her for a few
seconds, hands over $800 and quietly leaves.
Confused, but excited about her good fortune, the woman wraps back up in
the towel and goes 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.
the husband says, “did he say anything about the $! 800 he owes me?”
