An elderly widow and widower were dating for about five years. The man finally decided to ask her to marry. She immediately said "yes". The next morning when he awoke, he couldn't remember what her answer was! "Was she happy? I think so, wait, no, she looked at me funny..." After about an hour of trying to remember to no avail, he got on the telephone and gave her a call. Embarrassed, he admitted that he didn't remember her answer to the marriage proposal. "Oh", she said, "I'm so glad you called. I remembered saying 'yes' to someone, but I couldn't remember who it was."
Employee:Excuse me sir, may I talk to you?
Boss:Sure, come on in… What can I do for you?
Employee:Well sir, as you know, I have been an employee of this prestigious firm for over ten years
.Employee:I won't beat around the bush. Sir, I would like a raise.
I currently have four companies after me and so I decided to talk to you first
.Boss:A raise? I would love to give you a raise, but this is just not the right time

Boss:Taking into account these factors, and considering I don't want to start a brain drain, I'm willing to offer you a ten percent raise and an extra five days of vacation time.
How does that sound?
Employee:Great! It's a deal Thank you, sir
Boss:Before you go, just out of curiosity, what companies are after you?
Employee:Oh, the Electric Company, Gas Company, Water Company and the Mortgage Company!
