This story tells us not to be 'too kind' to our bosses. Here it goes:
There's this Jed Smith who was working for a multi-millionare as a house guard. One day, while the millionaire was driving out to catch an early morning flight to conclude a business deal, Jed Smith ran out from the guard house and stopped the millionaire's car just right in front of the gate.
He said 'Sir! Sir! Are you going to board a plane?'
'Yes, why?' asked the millionaire.
'You had better cancel the trip. You see, last night I dreamt about the plane going to crash.'
Curious over the early morning fright that Jed Smith had given, the multimillionaire decided to cancel his trip.
'You better be damn right for this is a million dollar deal.'
The following day, there was a news report that the plane which the millionaire was supposed to take had indeed crash landed.
'Thank God, I cancelled the trip', the rich man said realising that what Jed Smith had said had come true, he summoned Smith to see him. When the guard was called that morning, the millionaire gave him his salary and FIRED him.
WHY did he do that?
Use your brains.....
Use your brains!!!
Still no idea?
Come on..... it is quite easy.....
Still drawing a blank???
Just imagine you are Jed Smith and you have saved your boss's life.....
OK, since you do not want to 'use your brain' like Jed Smith before you talk to your boss.
Just scroll down for the answer.....
Jed Smith was supposed to guard the house at night. NOT to Sleep and Dream all night!
So, GO BACK TO WORK, and don't try to save your boss's life. It's not worth it! Always save your own ass first!!!
