the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Officer
asks a young engineer fresh out of the MIT, "And
what starting salary are you looking for?" The engineer
replies, "In the region of $125,000 a year, depending
on the benefits package." The interviewer inquires,
"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% of salary, and a company
car leased every two years, say, a red Corvette?"
The engineer sits up straight and says, "Wow! Are
you kidding?" The interviewer replies, "Yeah,
but you started it."
