I am the Boss

My boss was complaining in our staff meeting the other day that he wasn't getting any respect. Later that morning he went to a local sign shop and bought a small  sign that read " I AM THE BOSS'. He then taped it to his  office door. Later that day when he returned from lunch, he found that someone had taped a note to sign that said 'Your wife called , she wants her sign back’.


Grandpa was celebrating his 100th birthday and everybody  complimented him on how athletic and well preserved he  appeared."Gentleman, I will tell you the secret of my  success" he cackled " I have been in the open air day after day for some 75 years now".The celebrants were impressed and asked how he managed to keep up his rigorous fitness regime. " Well you see my wife and I  were married 75 years ago. On our wedding day, we made a solemn pledge. Whenever we had a fight, the one who was proved wrong would go outside and take a walk".


A Couple had been married for 45 years and had raised a  brood of 11 children and was blessed with 22 grandchildren.

A customer was bothering the waiter in a restaurant. First, he asked that the airconditioning be turned up  because it was too hot,Then he asked it be turned  down  because it was too cold, and so on for about half an hour.

So finaly, a second customer asked him why he didn't throw out the pest ."Oh,I really don't care or mind," said the waiter with a smile “WE DON'T EVEN HAVE AN AIRCONDITIONER.”

A couple was golfing one day on a very, very exclusive golf course lined with million-dollar houses. On the third tee, the husband said, "Honey, be very care ful when you drive the ball. Don't knock out any windows . It'll cost us a fortune to fix."

The wife teed up and shanked it right through the window of the biggest house on the course. The husband cringed and said, "I told you to watch out for the houses. All right, let's go up there, apologize, and see how much this is going to cost."

They walked up and knocked on the door. A voice said, "Come on in.”  They opened the door and saw glass all over the floor and a broken bottle lying on its side in the foyer.

A man on the couch said, "Are you the people who broke  my window?"

"Uh, yeah. Sorry about that," the husband replied.

"No, actually, I want to thank you. I'm a genie who was trapped for a thousand years inside that bottle. You've released me. I'm allowed to grant three wishes --

I'll give you each one wish, and I'll keep the last one for myself."

"Okay, great!" the husband said. "I want a million dollars a year for the rest of my life."

"No problem -- it's the least I could do. And you, what do you want?" the genie said, looking at the wife. "I want a house in every country of the world," she said ."Consider it done," the genie replied.

"And what's your wish, genie?", the husband said.

"Well, since I've been trapped in that bottle, I haven't had sex with a woman in a thousand years. My wish is to sleep with your wife."

The husband looked at the wife and said, "Well, we did  get a lot of money and all those houses, honey. I  guess I don't care."

The genie took the wife upstairs ...............

The genie, looked at the wife, and said, "How old is  your husband, anyway?" "Thirty-five," she replied.

"And he still believes in genies? ... That's amazing."

PS: Is there a moral here?
