A Smart Employer

Many of the employers are not sure of the resumes they received from job applicants. This is a fact not many people know, and is one of the factors why industrial accidents are common.

A Smart Employer

The greedy employer had the pile of
application letters on his table.
There were more than one hundred of them.
He had a glance at each of them.
One after another the letters went into
the waste paper basket.
His comment was :
this one was greedy,
he did not mention how much he expected.
Can I pay him $100000.00 per month?
No way.
This one thought he was smart.
He worked in a refinery
and he wanted $5500.00 per month.
This greedy Malaysian.
Ha, Ha, I found the best one
also from refinery and he asked only
$1600.00 per month.
That’s why we must not employ
the Malaysians again.
The project was started
The cheap engineer came in
His crew dug out the underground high tension cable
with a trenching hoe
causing the company $1000000.00 in fine
The technician who tested the vessel was killed
because he used the compressed air instead of water
The test rig was also poorly designed and constructed
The other technicians were testing
an underground pipeline
with compressed air.
They blew up the soil which was 36 inches above the pipe
Any animal which was unlucky
to be on that ground at that moment
would have been killed.
Another technician used compressed air
to clear up a soil pipe which was clogged.
The pipe burst sending shits on the tables
of the many VIPs who allowed them to work there.
How can you trust an employer
who does not know the difference
between oil & gas refinery
and a sugar refinery ?
