Should you let the boss have the first word?

A sales rep, an admin clerk, and their manager were walking to lunch when they found an antique oil lamp.

They rub it and a Genie came out.

The Genie said, “I will give each of you a wish, go quick.”

“Me first ! Me first !” said the admin clerk and continued, “I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.”

Pooff! She's gone.

“Me next ! Me next !” said the sales rep and hurriedly asked his wish, “I want to be in Hawaii , relaxing on the beach with love of my life.”

Pooff! He's gone.

“OK, over to you”, the Genie said to the manager.

The manager said, “I want those two back in the office by the time I am done with my lunch.”

Moral: Always let your boss have the first say
