The Accountant

A young accountant, straight out of university, applies for a job advertised in the Sydney Morning Herald. He is interviewed by the owner of a small business who has built it up from scratch.

"I need someone with an accounting degree," says the man, "but mainly I'm looking for someone to do my worrying for me."

"How do you mean?" says the accountant.

"I have lots of things to worry about, but I want someone else to worry about money matters."

"OK," says the accountant. "How much are you offering?"

"You can start on seventy-five thousand," says the owner.

"Seventy-five thousand dollars. How can a business like this afford to pay so much?"

"That," says the man, "is your first worry."

  3. I hope he didn't accept the job. $75,000 worth of worrying sounds like a very stressful job :)

  5. Oh yes, that guy should run for his life. It would certainly cost him to take that job.
    Happy Saturday to you Sandee and Zane too.

  16. Sandee, you aren't mean, you have a boat and that makes you smarter then a door knob. To tell the truth, just between you & me, don't tell anybody that I said this, I don't like Halloween also. I used to years ago but not now. My wife & daughter come to the door for the little kids. I enjoy watching my TV and eating the candy. Ha,ha,ha. Have a great time on your yacht. See ya.
