The HR Manager said, "Well, what would you say to a package of $200,000 a year, 5 weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years - say, a red Mercedes?"
The engineer sat up straight and said, "Wow!!! Are you joking?"
And the HR Manager said, "Of course, ...but you started it." Engineering Jokes
