The university basketball coach stormed into the president’s office one day and demanded a pay raise right then and there.
“Oh Please”, protested the university president, “you already earn more money than the entire History Department put together”.
“That may be so”, the basketball coach replied, “but you have no idea what I have to put up with every day in this job.
“Just look at this”, he said to the president, as he out into the hall and grabbed an athlete who was jogging down the hallway.
“Run over to my office and see if I’m there”, he ordered.
Twenty minutes later, the athlete returned, sweaty and out of breath.
“You’re not there, sir”, he reported.
“Oh, I see what you mean”, the university president said, scratching his head. “I would have phoned to check”.
