A New Teacher
Miss Ashley was new to teaching at the junior high school and decided to test the general knowledge of her new class.
"Who can tell me who brought down the walls of Jericho?", she asked.
"Wasn't me, Miss!", came a swift reply from the front row.
Somewhat taken aback that no-one knew the answer, she reported what had happened in the staff room at break.
A fellow teacher asked, "The fellow who answered, was he the little one with red hair and glasses in the front?"
"Yes", she replied.
"Well", said the other teacher," I know him, and if he said that he didn't do it, then he didn't!!"
Now Miss Ashley was quite upset. She decided to go to the Principal. She told him what had happened, and the reaction of the other teacher who should have known better.
The Principal looked at her for a moment, then he said, "Look, Miss Ashley. You are new around here. There is no point in making trouble. Write me up an invoice for the damage to the walls, and I'll submit it to the insurance company on Monday.
A New Waitress
A new and inexperienced waitress tells another waitress she is concerned about being able to
carry the heavy trays and serve from them.
The other waitress explains that tray stands are placed throughout the restaurant. The nervous
beginner serves all her lunches successfully, and afterwards asks an elderly couple if everything has been all right.
“It was fine, dear," replies the man, “but my wife and I have to leave now. Could she please have her walker back?"
Rossi was the manager of an upscale men's wear store in a wealthy section of town and was interviewing Abe for the recently advertised salesman role. Rossi looks at Abe's resume and notices that Abe has never worked in retail before.Rossi says to Abe, "Wow! If you don't mind me saying. For someone with no retail experience, you are certainly asking for a high salary." "Well I suppose I am," Abe replies, "but you must understand that the work is so much harder when you don't know what you're doing."
The Secret Of Your Success
The other day I had the opportunity to drop by my department head's office. He's a friendly guy and, on the rare opportunities that I have to pay him a visit, we have had enjoyable conversations.
While I was in his office, I asked him, "Sir, what is the secret of your success?"
He said, "Two words."
"And, Sir, what are they?"
"But how do you make right decisions?"
"One word," he responded.
"And, Sir, what is that?"
"And how do you get experience?"
"And, Sir what are they?"
Years Of Experience
"Your Honor," the plaintiff's lawyer retored, "if this case is going to be judged by experience, may I remind you that my client has been walking for over sixty years!"
