    Dear ADMIN - I believe the members will get only the good thing out of this. If you think that this is not suitable to publish, before deleting please go through the all the lessons and after that you are free to take a decision.


    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
    neighbor.

    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
    wraps back up 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 neighbor,' she replies.

    'Great,' the husband
    says, 'did he say anything about the $800 he owes
    me?'


    Moral of the
    story:


    If you share critical
    information pertaining to credit and risk with your
    shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent
    avoidable exposure.


    Lesson
    2:

    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.

    On his arrival at
    the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said,
    'Go forth and seek, further up, you will find
    glory.'

    Moral of the
    story:


    If you are not well
    informed in your job, you might miss a great
    opportunity.


    Lesson
    3:

    A sales rep, an
    administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch
    when they find an antique oil
    lamp.

    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 ,
    relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless
    supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my
    life.'

    Puff! He's
    gone.

    'OK, you're up,'
    the Genie says to the
    manager..
    The manager says, 'I
    want those two back in the office
    after
    lunch.'

    Moral of the
    story:


    Always let your boss
    have the first say.

    Lesson
    4

    An eagle was sitting
    on a tree resting, doing
    nothing.

    A small rabbit
    saw the eagle and asked him, 'Can I also sit like you and do
    nothing?'
    The eagle answered:
    'Sure, why not.'

    So, the rabbit sat
    on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a
    fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate
    it.

    Moral of the
    story:


    To be sitting and doing
    nothing, you must be sitting very, very high
    up.



    Lesson
    5

    A turkey was
    chatting with a bull.

    'I would love to
    be able to get to the top of that tree' sighed the turkey,
    'but I haven't got the
    energy.'
    'Well, why don't you
    nibble on some of my droppings?' replied the bull. They're
    packed with nutrients.'

    The turkey
    pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him
    enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the
    tree.

    The next day,
    after eating some more dung, he reached the second
    branch.

    Finally after a
    fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of
    the tree.

    He was promptly
    spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the
    tree.

    Moral of the
    story:


    Bull Shit might get you
    to the top, but it won't keep you
    there...


    Lesson
    6

    A little bird was
    flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze
    and fell to the ground into a large
    field.

    While he was
    lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on
    him.

    As the frozen
    bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize
    how warm he was.

    The dung was
    actually thawing him out!

    He lay there all
    warm and happy, and soon began to sing for
    joy.
    A passing cat heard
    the bird singing and came to investigate.

    Following the sound,
    the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and
    promptly dug him out and ate
    him.

    Morals of the
    story:


    (1) Not everyone who
    shits on you is your
    enemy.

    (2) Not everyone
    who gets you out of shit is
    your
    friend.

    (3) And when you're
    in deep shit, it's best to
    keep
    your mouth
    shut!

    THUS ENDS THE FIVE
    MINUTE MANAGEMENT COURSE
