Buying a pet parrot

One day a businessman went to a pet shop to buy a parrot. The assistant took the man to the parrot section and asked him to choose one.

The man asks, "How much is the yellow one?"

The assistant replied that it costs £2,000. The man was shocked and asked the assistant why it's so expensive.

The assistant told him, "This parrot is a very special one. He can type really fast."

"Okay, what about the green one?" the man asked.

The assistant says, "He costs £5,000 because he can type, answer incoming phone calls and takes notes."

"What about the red one?" the man then asked.

The assistant said, "That one's £10,000."

Curious, the man asked, "What does he do?"

The assistant said, "I don't know, but the other two call him boss."
