Today I am sharing with you a conversation I recently had with one of our hard working elves . . .
Elf : Excuse me sir, may I talk to you?
Santa : Sure, come on in. What can I do for you my friend?
Elf : Well Santa, as you know, I have been a loyal employee of this jolly group for over ten years.
Santa : Yes, I must say, a very hard working and loyal elf indeed . . .
Elf : I won't beat around the bush - Santa, I would like a raise. I currently have four companies after me, so I decided to talk to you before I make any commitments to any of them. Again sir, a part of my loyalty!
Santa : A raise you say? I would certainly love to give you a raise, but the timing is just not right.
Elf : I understand your position, Santa, and I know that the current economic down turn has had a negative impact on everyone, but you must also take into consideration my hard work, my pro-activeness in getting difficult assignments completed and loyalty to you and your Christmas efforts for well over a decade now.
Santa : Taking into account these ALL of these factors, and justifying that I don't want to start a new training session at this time, I'm willing to offer you a 10% raise and an extra five days of vacation time annually, taken by mid-year mind you. Fair enough, my friend?
Elf : Great Santa! That's a very fair offer in my opinion! Thank you for understanding, Santa!
Santa : Before you go my friend, and simply out of curiosity, which four companies were after you?
Elf : Oh, they were the Electric Company, Gas Company, Water Company and the Mortgage Company!
