Joke of the Week

Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Person asked a young accountant who was fresh out of a large accounting practice, "What starting salary were you thinking about?"

The accountant said, "In the neighbourhood of £50,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."

The interviewer said, "Well, what would you say to a package of 5 weeks holiday, full medical and dental, Company Retirement Fund of 50% of salary, Executive Share Option Scheme, Profit Related Pay and a company car leased every 2 years - say, a 5 series BMW?"

The accountant sat up straight and said, "Wow! Are you kidding?"

The interviewer replied, "Yeah, but you started it."
