Company car

Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Officer of a company in Cheltenham asks a young engineer fresh out of University, "And what starting salary are you looking for?"

The engineer replies, "In the region of £125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."

The interviewer inquires, "Well, what would you say to a package of five weeks holiday, 14 paid days off, full medical and dental care, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every two years, say, a red Corvette?"

The engineer sits up straight and says, "Wow! Are you kidding?"

The interviewer replies, "Yeah, but you started it."
