Joke of the Week

An accountant spends a week at his new office with the accountant he is replacing. On the last day the departing accountant tells him that he has left two envelopes in the desk drawer and that the envelope numbered 1 should be opened if he encounters any sort of crisis in the job. If a further crisis occurs he should open the envelope numbered 2.

Three months down the track there is a major drama, all the accounts are wrong - you know what it's like - and the accountant feels very threatened by it all. He remembers the parting words of his predecessor and finds and opens the first envelope. The message inside says, "Blame me." He does this and gets off the hook.

Three months later there is another crisis and he opens the second envelope.  The message says, "Write two envelopes."
