A young engineer was leaving the office at 3.45 p.m. when he found the Managing director standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand.
“Listen,” said the Managing director , “this is a very sensitive and important document, and my secretary is not here. Can you make this thing work?”
“Certainly,” said the young engineer. He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.
“Excellent, excellent!” said the Managing director as his paper disappeared inside the machine, “I just need one copy.”
Never, ever assume that your boss knows what he’s doing.
