Please sir, can I have a raise?

Oliver walks into his boss's office one day and says, "Sir, I'll be straight with you, I know the economy isn't great, but I've got three companies after me, and I'd like to respectfully ask for a raise."

After a few minutes of haggling, the boss finally agrees to give him a 5% raise, and Oliver happily gets up to leave.

"By the way", asks the boss as Oliver is leaving his office, "which three companies are after you?"

Oliver replies, "The electric company, water company, and phone company."
