A young engineer was leaving the office in the evening when he found the CEO standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand.
“Listen”, said the CEO, “this is a very sensitive and important document, and my secretary is not here. Can you make the thing work?”
“Certainly,” said the young engineer. He turned on the machine, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.
“Excellent, excellent!” said the CEO as his paper disappeared inside the machine, “I just need one copy.”
Lesson: Never, never ever assume that your boss knows what he’s doing.
Two atoms are talking to each other, and one says,
"I think I've just lost an electron!"
"Are you certain?" the other replies, "Yes! I'm positive!"
Mark Twain said that explaining a joke is like dissecting a frog: you understand it better, but the frog dies in the process.
Three engineers and three accountants were traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the three accountants each bought tickets and watched as the three engineers bought only one ticket. "How are
three people going to travel on only one ticket?" asked an accountant. "Watch and you'll see", answered an engineer.
They all boarded the train. The accountants took their respective seats, but the three engineers all crammed into a rest room and closed the door behind them. Shortly after the train departed, the conductor came around collecting tickets. He knocked on the restroom door and said, "Ticket, please". The door opened just a crack and a single arm emerged with a ticket in hand. The conductor took it and moved on. The accountants saw this and agreed it was a quite clever idea.
So, after the conference, the accountants decide to copy the engineers on the return trip and save some money (being clever with money, and all that). When they got to the station, they bought a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the engineers didn't buy a ticket at all. "How are you going to ride without a ticket"? said one perplexed accountant. "Watch and you'll see", answered an engineer. When they boarded the train, the three accountants crammed into a restroom and the three engineers crammed into another one nearby. The train departed. Shortly afterward, one of the engineers left his restroom and walked over to the restroom where the accountants were hiding.
He knocked on the door and said, "Ticket, please".
