    Talking 5 minute management course

    > Lesson 1:
    >
    > A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up
    > her shower, when the doorbell rings.
    >
    > The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs.
    >
    > When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbour.
    >
    > Before she says a word, Bob says, 'I'll give you £800 to drop that
    > towel.'
    >
    >
    > After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands
    > naked in front of Bob, after a few seconds, Bob hands her £800 and leaves.
    >
    >
    > The woman re-wraps herself in the towel and goes back upstairs.
    >
    > When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, 'Who was that?'
    >
    > 'It was Bob the next door neighbour,' she replies.
    >
    > 'Great,' the husband says. 'Did he say anything about the £800 he

    > A priest offered a Nun a lift.
    >
    > She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg.
    >
    > The priest nearly had an accident.
    >
    > After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg.
    >
    > The nun said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'
    >
    > The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand
    > slide up her leg again.
    > The nun once again said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'
    >
    > The priest apologized 'Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.'
    >
    > Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way.

    >
    > They rub it and a Genie comes out.
    > The Genie says, 'I'll give each of you just one wish.'
    > 'Me first! Me first!' says the admin clerk. 'I want to be in the
    > Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.'
    > Puff! She's gone.
    >
    > 'Me next! Me next!' says the sales rep. 'I want to be in Hawaii ,
