As a small business owner, your job is all about problem-solving. Whether the problem means dealing with a sluggish sales season, underperforming workers, or equipment malfunctioning, you’re constantly being placed in stressful situations.
It’s simply impossible to avoid workplace issues. What you can do, however, is find ways to cope with the stress, get it under control and thus more effectively manage your day, not to mention your life. A healthy sense of humor can help improve your overall physical and emotional health.
Here are some funny business jokes to lighten your work day.
1. Getting a raise
Sam walks into his boss’s office and says “Sir, I’ll be straight with you, I know the economy isn’t great, but I have three companies after me, and I would like to respectfully ask for a raise.”
After a few minutes of haggling the boss finally agrees to a 5% raise, and Sam happily gets up to leave. “By the way,” asks the boss, “Which three companies are after you?”
“The electric company, water company, and phone company!”
