One morning at the bargaining table, the company’s chief negotiator held up a copy of the morning edition of the local newspaper.
“This man,” he announced, “Called in sick yesterday!”
There on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just won a local golf tournament with an excellent score.
The silence in the room was broken by a union negotiator. “Jaysus,” he said. “Think of the score he could have had if he hadn’t been sick!”
