The Secretary

Sharon is not the brightest secretary that Jonathan has employed, but she always does what she is asked to do. One day, Jonathan needs a long column of figures to be added up for a sales presentation he is giving later on that afternoon, so he says to Sharon, "please add up these figures for me and make sure you check the total is correct. I need them for an important meeting and I wouldn’t want to give out wrong information. May I suggest that you add up the column three times to be absolutely sure."

"OK, sir," replies Sharon.

One hour later, Sharon goes to Jonathan and says, "Here is what you asked me to do, sir."

"Thank you, Sharon," says Jonathan, "and did you check it like I asked you to do?"

"Yes, sir, three times," replies Sharon, "and here are the three answers, sir."
