Friday Joke: Why you should always let the boss go first!


There are some unwritten rules about bosses, and letting the boss go first should be one of them.

Here’s a little lesson for you about WHY the boss should go first. . . .

A safety officer, a safety manager, and a safety director were walking through a park on their way to lunch when they found an antique oil lamp.

They rubbed it, and a Genie came out in a puff of smoke. The Genie said, “I usually only grant three wishes, so I’ll give each of you just one.”

“Me first! Me first!” said the safety officer. “I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.”


He’s gone.

“Me next! Me next!” said the safety manager. “I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Margaritas, and the love of my life.”


He’s gone.

“You’re next,” the Genie said to the safety director. The director (aka the boss) said, “I want those two back in the office after lunch.”
