Career Humour: Your First Job

Fresh out of the University, a young man applied for an advertised job for an accountant and was called for an interview. Now he was being interviewed by a very nervous man who ran a small business that he had started himself. “I need someone with an accounting degree,” the man said. “But mainly, Im looking for someone to do my worrying for me.”

“Excuse me?” the young accountant said.

“I worry about a lot of things,” the man said. “But I dont want to have to worry about money. Your job will be to take all the money worries off my back.”

“I see,” the young accountant said. “And how much does the job pay?”

“I will start you at N10,000,000.”

“Ten Million Naira!” the young accountant exclaimed. “How can such a small business afford a sum like that?”

“That,” the owner said, “is your first worry.”
