Jistá žena v balónu ztratila orientaci. Spustí se níž a na zemi zahlédne chlapa. Spustí se ještě níže a volá na něj:

"Promiňte, nemohl byste mi prosím pomoci? Slíbila jsem příteli, že se před hodinou setkáme a teď nevím, kde jsem." Muž dole odpoví:

"Nacházíte se v balónu přibližně 10 m nad povrchem Země. Vaše konkrétní poloha je 49 stupňů, 28 minut a 11 vteřin severní šířky a 8 stupňů, 31 minut a 58 vteřin východní délky."

"Vy jste určitě inženýr," říká žena v balónu.

"To je pravda", odpoví muž, "odkud to víte?"

"Tedy," povídá žena v balónu, "všechno, co jste mi řekl, je z technického hlediska správně, ale nemám ponětí, co si s vašimi informacemi mám počít, neboť v konečném důsledku stále nevím, kde jsem.

Popravdě řečeno jste mi vůbec nepomohl. Nanejvýš jste můj let jen prodloužil." Muž na to odpoví:

"Vy musíte být určitě zaměstnaná v managementu."

"Ano," povídá žena v balónu, "ale odkud to víte?"

"Tedy," povídá muž, "nevíte, kde jste, ani kam směřujete. Díky velkému množství teplého vzduchu jste se dostala až na současnou pozici. Slíbila jste něco a nemáte ani páru, jak to dodržet, a od lidí pod vámi očekáváte, že vyřeší vaše problémy. Faktem zůstává, že se nacházíte v naprosto stejné situaci jako před našim setkáním, ale z neznámého důvodu jsem na vině já."


HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL OF YOU !!!!! Company Memo FROM: Patty Lewis, Human Resources Director TO: All Employees DATE: October 1, 2008 RE: Gala Christmas Party I'm happy to inform you that the company Christmas Party will take place on December 23rd, starting at noon in the private function room at the Grill House. There will be a cash bar and plenty of drinks! We'll have a small band playing traditional carols... feel free to sing along. And don't be surprised if our CEO shows up dressed as Santa Claus! A Christmas tree will be lit at 1:00 PM. Exchanges of gifts among employees can be done at that time; however, no gift should be over $10.00 to make the giving of gifts easy for everyone's pockets. This gathering is only for employees! Our CEO will make a special announcement at that time! Merry Christmas to you and your family, Patty Company Memo FROM: Patty Lewis, Human Resources Director TO: All Employees DATE: October 2, 2008 RE: Gala Holiday Party In no way was yesterday's memo intended to exclude our Jewish employees. We recognize that Hanukkah is an important holiday, which often coincides with Christmas, though unfortunately not this year. However, from now on, we're calling it our "Holiday Party." The same policy applies to any other employees who are not Christians and to those still celebrating Reconciliation Day. There will be no Christmas tree and no Christmas carols will be sung. We will have other types of music for your enjoyment. Happy now? Happy Holidays to you and your family, Patty Company Memo FROM: Patty Lewis, Human Resources Director TO: All Employees DATE: October 3, 2008 RE: Holiday Party Regarding the note I received from a member of Alcoholics Anonymous requesting a non-drinking table, you didn't sign your name.. I'm happy to accommodate this request, but if I put a sign on a table that reads, "AA Only", you wouldn't be anonymous anymore. How am I supposed to handle this? Somebody? And sorry, but forget about the gift exchange, no gifts are allowed since the union members feel that $10.00 is too much money and the executives believe $10.00 is a little chintzy. REMEMBER: NO GIFTS EXCHANGE WILL BE ALLOWED. Patty Company Memo FROM: Patty Lewis, Human Resources Director To: All Employees DATE: October 4, 2008 RE: Generic Holiday Party What a diverse group we are! I had no idea that December 20th begins the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which forbids eating and drinking during daylight hours. There goes the party! Seriously, we can appreciate how a luncheon at this time of year does not accommodate our Muslim employees' beliefs. Perhaps the Grill House can hold off on serving your meal until the end of the party or else package everything for you to take it home in little foil doggy baggy. Will that work? Meanwhile, I've arranged for members of Weight Watchers to sit farthest from the dessert buffet, and pregnant women will get the table closest to the restrooms. Gays are allowed to sit with each other. Lesbians do not have to sit with Gay men, each group will have their own table. Yes, there will be flower arrangement for the Gay men's table. To the person asking permission to cross dress, the Grill House asks that no cross-dressing be allowed, apparently because of concerns about confusion in the restrooms. Sorry. We will have booster seats for short people. Low-fat food will be available for those on a diet. I am sorry to report that we cannot control the amount of salt used in the food . The Grill House suggests that people with high blood pressure taste a bite first. There will be fresh "low sugar" fruits as dessert for diabetics, but the restaurant cannot supply "no sugar" desserts. Sorry! Did I miss anything?!?!? Patty Company Memo FROM: Patty Lewis, Human Resources Director TO: All F*%^ing Employees DATE: October 5, 2008 RE: The F*%^ing Holiday Party I've had it with you vegetarian pricks!!! We're going to keep this party at the Grill House whether you like it or not, so you can sit quietly at the table furthest from the "grill of death," as you so quaintly put it, and you'll get your f*%^ing salad bar, including organic tomatoes. But you know, tomatoes have feelings, too. They scream when you slice them. I've heard them scream. I'm hearing them scream right NOW! The rest of you f*%^ing wierdos can kiss my *ss. I hope you all have a rotten holiday! Drive drunk and die, The B*tch from H*ll!!! Company Memo FROM: Joan Bishop, Acting Human Resources Director DATE: October 6, 2008 RE: Patty Lewis and Holiday Party I'm sure I speak for all of us in wishing Patty Lewis a speedy recovery from her recent nervous breakdown and I'll continue to forward your cards to her at the asylum. In the meantime, management has decided to cancel our Holiday Party and give everyone the afternoon of the 23rd off with full pay. Happy Whatever! Joan
