As soon as the dentist asked the patient to sit down, he pulled out his wallet. Seeing this the dentist said, "Please don't, you don't need to pay me now."
The patient answered: "Pay you! I just want to count my money before I'm unconscious!"
A fire sale
After meeting with the boss, the head salesperson mustered the troops.
"People," she said, "I've just been informed that we're going to be having a fire sale."
A fire sale?" spoke up one agent. "But we sell insurance."
"I said a fire sale, and I meant it," she replied hotly. "Anyone who doesn't make a sale gets fired."
A young businessman had just started his own firm. He rented a beautiful office and had it furnished with antiques.
Sitting there, he saw a man come into the outer office. Wishing to appear like a hotshot guy, the businessman picked up the phone and started to pretend he had a big deal working.
He threw huge figures around and made giant commitments. Finally he hung up and asked the visitor, "Can I help you?"
The man said, "Yeah, I've come to activate your phone lines."
