A boss called one of his workers into the office.
“Now listen, Simms, you’re going to have to pull your socks
up or I’ll have to sack you. For the past few weeks you’ve
been constantly late, you’ve made silly mistakes and you’ve
not been civil to your fellow workers. What do you have to
say for yourself?”
“I’m sorry, Sir. Things aren’t right between me and the wife
and I’m sick with worry.”
Now the boss was a kindly man, so he gave him some advice.
“Now Simms, you’ve got to show them that you don’t take
them for granted. Why! Look at me. When I get home I give
my wife a long, lingering kiss, give her a present and then
make mad passionate love. I’ll give you the afternoon off, so
why don’t you do the same thing?”
“I don’t know what to say,” gasped Simms. “Thank you very
much…by the way, what’s your address?”
