The young accounting graduate, fresh out of uni and knowing everything, applied for his first job.
The prospective employer asked him what starting salary he was looking for.
“Oh, around $100,000 a year, depending on the benefits package.”
“Well, how does this sound? Five weeks annual leave, 22.5% superannuation, paid expenses to overseas conferences every year,
home telephone reimbursed and a company car replaced every 20,000 kilometers, say a Mercedes convertible.”
The graduate sat up straight and tried not to look excited.
“Wow. Are you kidding?”
“Yeah. But you started it.”
