The secret to job security


After having lost five different jobs in four months, Peter was hired by a warehouse. But one day he lost control of the forklift truck and drovie it off the loading dock.

Looking at the damage, the owner shook his head and said he’d have to deduct 10 percent of Peter’s wages to pay for the repairs.

“How much will it cost?” asked Peter “About $4,500,” said the owner.

“What a relief!” exclaimed Peter. “I’ve finally got job security!”
