Job Offer

Reaching the end of a job interview, the human resources person asked a young engineer fresh out of MIT what kind of a salary he was looking for.

"In the neighborhood of $200,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."

"We would offer you that salary plus 5-weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund up to 50% of your base salary, an annual bonus, and a company car."

"Wow! Are you kidding?"

"Yeah, but you started it."
