    "But We Don't Need Any More Money! We Already Have TOO MUCH Money!"

    This is a true story --- I, Chadeaux was there to witness it:

    One day I was working with my late boss (Don Gammel) when he got a phone call from a foreign company trying to loan him money on a signature loan. He just smiled, snickered a bit and then asked her, "Okay, how much money do you need?" This really confused her. By now he had put her on the speaker phone.


    "No sir, we are offering to loan you money!"


    About this time his grin got bigger. "But we don't need any money. We have TOO MUCH money here and we need to get rid of some! How much do YOU need?"


    By this time everyone on the sales floor was trying to hold in their laughter . . .


    "No sir, you don't understand! We are offering to loan you some money!" she said.


    By now he was audibly giggling at her, "But I told you, WE DON'T NEED ANY MORE MONEY! WE ALREADY HAVE TOO MUCH! HOW MUCH MONEY CAN I LOAN YOU?"


    Now the whole sales floor was laughing --- out loud.


    Embarassed, the nice oriental lady shyly said: "Bye."




    Said all that to say that I finally got the nerve to try it today. Works as good as ever, so I thought I'd pass this tip along.

    Great story! I think that would have been a great time for everyone at your work to ask for a raise since your boss said we already have too much money!

    Do you remember Andy Griffith's character "Sheriff Andy Taylor" from down in Mayberry? Make his hair gray, give him an Arkansas drawl, and add 30 years to him and you would have my late boss. You didn't have to ask him for a raise. A very generous man.

    If he saw you were doing your best, he found a way to give you a raise -- unlike his son (my current boss) who thinks you should be able to live well in 2020 on what wasn't quite enough in 2011.
