A big construction company recently hired several cannibals. “You are all part of our team now”, said the HR manager during the welcoming briefing. “You will get all the usual benefits and you can go to the canteen for something to eat, but please don’t eat any of the other employees”.
The cannibals promised they would not.
Four weeks later their boss remarked, “You’re all working very hard, and I’m satisfied with you. However, one of our Technical Assistant has disappeared. Do any of you know what happened to him?”
The cannibals all shook their heads indicating “no”.
After the boss had left, the leader of the cannibals said to the others, “Which one of you idiots ate the Technical Assistant?”
A hand rose hesitantly, to which the leader of the cannibals continued, “You fool!! For four weeks we’ve been eating Managers and Supervisors and no one noticed anything, but no, you had to go and eat someone who actually works!!!!”
