The boss called one of his employees into the office. Rob, he said, youve been with the company for a year. You started off in the post room, one week later you were promoted to a sales position, and one month after that you were promoted to district manager of the sales department. Just four short months later, you were promoted to vice-chairman. Now its time for me to retire, and I want you to take over the company. What do you say to that? Thanks, said the employee. Thanks? the boss replied. Is that all you can say? I suppose not, the employee said. Thanks, Dad.
