Job Security

After being laid off from five different jobs in the past year, Ralph was hired by a warehouse.

Unfortunately, one day he lost control of the forklift and drove it off the loading dock. Surveying the damage, the owner shook his head and said, "I'm sorry, Ralph, but I'm going to have to withhold 10% of each of your paychecks until we have enough to pay back the damage."

"How much will it cost?" Ralph asked.

"About $5,000," the owner replied.

"Finally!" Ralph exclaimed. "Job security!"

Moral of the Story: Sometimes, lower pay and job security is preferable to high-paying uncertainty.
