Who Starts the Jokes

Job PerkReaching the end of a job interview, the human resources person asked a young applicant fresh out of business school, “And what starting salary are you looking for?”

The applicant said, “In the neighborhood of $200,000 a year, depending on the benefits package.”

The interviewer said, “Well, what would you say to a package of five weeks’ vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50 percent of your salary, and a company car leased every two years, say, a red sports car?”

The applicant sat up straight and said, “Wow! Are you kidding?”

The interviewer replied, “Yeah, but you started it.”
