On walking into the factory, the Managing Director of the Company noticed a young guy leaning against the wall and doing nothing.

He approached the young man and calmly said to him, “How much do you earn?”

The young man was quite amazed that he was asked such a personal question, he replied, “None the less, I earn $ 2000.00 a month, Sir. Why?”

Without answering, the MD took out his wallet, removed
$6000.00 cash, gave it to the young man and said, “Around here I pay people for working, not for standing around looking pretty! Here is your 3months salary, now GET OUT and don’t come back.”

The young man turned around and was quickly out of sight.

Noticing a few onlookers, the MD said in a very upset manner,

“And that applies to everybody in this company.”

He approached one of the onlookers and asked him, “Who’s the young man I just fired?”

To which an amazing reply came –

“He was the pizza delivery guy, Sir!”
