Can't believe my ears when a crew told me this story...it went like this:
A senior staff (boss) in his department was to be transferred to another division. Let's call him Terry. He was not the best boss to work with and most of his staff disliked him.
One day he had news he was to be transferred out of his dept. It was a practice that the staff would throw a farewell party for a colleague who is leaving the dept or company. Being an unpopular boss, Terry knew his junior staff would not care to give him a farewell party. In order to avoid embarrassment to himself, Terry decided to give the staff a farewell party.
Terry's house was big and spacious. He organised a party and invited his staff. Being polite,most of the staff attended his party. They had a BBQ and lots of drinks.
On the next working day i.e. Monday, Terry's secretary went round the office and asked those staff who had attended the farewell party to pay for their share of the expenses incurred at the party!
