Hi friends. I have a story to share today. The story … of a boss … who ventured into the copy room … Here’s her story …
Before I begin, let me share an image to put you in the mood for this … story …
The Boss Went Down to the Copy Room
The boss went down to the supply room, she was looking for an envelope to seal.
She was in a bind ‘cos she was way behind and she was ready to close a deal.
When she came across this young man copyin’ on a Xerox and playin’ it hot.
The boss jumped upon a Banker’s Box and said: “Boy let me tell you what:
“I guess you didn’t know it, but I’m a copy maker too.
“And if you’d care to take a dare, I’ll make a bet with you.
“Now you make a pretty good copy, boy, but give the boss her due:
“I bet a raise of gold against your soul, ‘cos I think I’m better than you.”
The boy said: “My name’s Johnny and I figure that I’ll win,
“And I’ll take your bet, your gonna regret, ‘cos I’m the best employee that’s ever been.”
“Johnny stack your paper and you run that copier hard.
‘Cos hells broke loose in the office and the boss aint’ just a blowhard.
And if you win you get this shiny bonus made of gold.
But if you lose, you’ll end up on the dole!”
The boss opened up her ream of paper and she said: “I’ll start this show.”
And fire flew from her fingertips as she loaded toner from Ricoh.
As she worked the copier it made an evil hiss.
Then a band of interns joined in and it looked something like this…
When the boss finished, Johnny said: “Well you’re pretty good there, hon,
“But sit down in that executive chair, and let me show you how its done.”
Challenge in the copyroom, run boys, run.
The boss’s in the house of the risin’ sun.
Workin in the Office, makin’ some dough
“Daddy, does your boss bite?”
“No, child, no.”
The boss bowed her head because she knew that she’d been beat.
She laid her copier access card on the ground at Johnny’s feet.
Johnny said: “Boss just come on back if you ever want to try again.
I told you once, I deserve a raise, ’cause I’m the best there’s ever been.”
That is all. How’d you like my story? Do you think Johnny deserved a raise? Or should he be fired for insubordination?
