Who is the BOSS?

A man wanted to buy his son a parrot as a gift.

The next day he went to the pet shop and saw three identical parrots in a cage.

 He asked the clerk, “how much for the parrot on the right?

 The owner said it was Rs. 2500.

 “Rs. 2500.”, the man said. “Well what does he do?

 “He knows how to use all of the functions of Microsoft Office 2010, responds the clerk.

 “He can do all of your spreadsheets and type all of your letters.”

 The man then asked what the second parrot cost.

 The clerk replied, Rs. 5000, but he not only knows Office 2000, but is an expert computer programmer.

 Finally, the man inquired about the cost of the last parrot.

 The clerk replied, “Rs. 25,000.”

 Curious as to how a bird can cost Rs. 25,000, the man asked what this bird’s specialty was.

 The clerk replies, “Well to be honest I haven’t seen him do anything. 

But the other two parrots call him *”BOSS”!!

    boss ‘cos he orders people to work.a gud boss does more of thinking a crystalization of opinions n ideas given him to come up wt what’s best for the establishment depending, still, on his “bossy” level. he is de boss ‘cos of this authority that he possesses.

    A boss is different from others in how he appears to be at any given point of time and how me manages to find work for those who know the work but do not know where else but under the boss. He is boss when he reward them and himself with salary at month end.

    geting work from others is more difficult than doing work by urself.

    I like joke it. but lesson to this:

    (My Boss & I):  when I take a long time, I am slow   when my boss takes a long time he is thorough. when I don’t do it I am lazy.  when he doesn’t do it he is too busy.  when I do something without being told I am trying to be smart   when my boss does the same that is initiative.  when I please my boss I’ apple polishing.   when my boss does it he is co-operating.  finaly when I do good, my boos never remembers but when I do wrong he
    never forget.
