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

Acme Steel,  feeling it was time for a shake-up, 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, "He's the pizza delivery guy."
