Manager’s Advice

There was a manager of a company who was ready to retire, so he began training his replacement.

Just before he left for good, he took the replacement aside and told him that if he ever got really jammed up, he should look in the center drawer of his desk and he would find two envelopes. He told him to open envelope #1.

Well, time goes by and one day, a big project went bad and the new manager was in real trouble over it. He remembered the drawer and the envelopes and went and got envelope #1 and opened it.

Inside was a sheet of paper with just two words on it—“Blame me!”

A few months later, the new manager again found himself in hot water and remembered that there was an envelope #2.

He went and opened that one and found another note. This one read, “Go get two envelopes.”
