An employee is terribly overweight, so to help her, her boss proposes that she will get an increment if she takes up a diet.
“I want you to eat regularly for two days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for two weeks.
The next time I see you, you’ll have lost at least five pounds and the increment is yours.”
When the employee returns, she’s lost nearly 20 pounds.
“Why, that’s amazing!” the boss says. “Did you follow my instructions?”
The employee nods. “I’ll tell you, though, I thought I was going to drop dead that third day.”
“From hunger, you mean?” asked the boss.
“No, from skipping.”
Thank you Ramana for this little number.
