Making a name for yourself

If you've ever worked for a boss who reacts before getting the facts and thinking things through, you will love this!

Arcelor-Mittal Steel, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO. The new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers.

On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning against a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business. He asked the guy, "How much money do you make a week?"

A little surprised, the young man looked at him and said, "I make $400 a week. Why?"

The CEO said, "Wait right here." He walked back to his office, came back in two minutes, and handed the guy $1,600 in cash and said, "Here's four weeks' pay. Now GET OUT and don't come back."

Feeling pretty good about himself the CEO looked around the room and asked, "Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did here?"

From across the room a voice said, "Pizza delivery guy from Domino's."

herk, that is a great story, and that just shows how much a CEO knows about the people that hold him up, if the crew parted he would fall on his head.

Had a (GMI) summer replacment boss that suspended me for a week when I told him I needed a Metric crows foot wrench to stop a hydraulic leak in a new machine that just came in . He said I was making it up,and suspended me for a week. Day shift repair came in and sent out for the crows foot wrench,repair completed. Boy that was a GOOD paid vacation! Youroo!!
