hi

A Junior Software Engineer, a Senior Software Engineer and their PM are on their way to a meeting. On their way through a park, they come across a
wonder lamp. They rub the lamp and a ghost appears. The ghost says,” Normally, one is granted three wishes but as you are three, I will allow one wish each".

So the eager Junior Software Engineer shouted, “I want the first wish. I want to be in the Bahamas, on a fast boat and have no worries." Pfufffff and he was gone.

Now the Senior Software Engineer could not keep quiet and shouted "I want to be in Florida with beautiful girls, plenty of food and cocktails." Pfufffff and he was also gone.

The PM calmly said," I want these two idiots back in the office after lunch at 2.00 pm"

Moral of the story is: Always allow the bosses to speak first!!!!!!!


Perspective on life






One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live.

They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?"

"It was great, Dad."

"Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked.

"Oh yeah," said the son.

"So, tell me, what you learned from the trip?" asked the father.

The son answered:
"I saw that we have one dog and they had four.

We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end.

We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night...

Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.

We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight.

We have servants who serve us, but they serve others.

We buy our food, but they grow theirs.

We have walls around our property to protect us; they have friends to protect them."

The boy's father was speechless.

Then his son added, "Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are."

Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have.

Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends!
