Manager A: The other day, I told Joe, “Here’s $100. Go buy a car for me.” And he said ok and left. It’s $100! Where are you going to find a car being sold for $100?
Manager B: That’s nothing. The other day, I told Moe, “Hey, go to my house and check if I’m home.” And he said ok and left. Obviously I’m not home! Otherwise how would I have been there to tell him to do that?
Meanwhile, Joe and Moe were complaining about how stupid their managers were.
Joe: The other day, my manager gave me $100 and told me to go buy him a car. It’s a holiday! Where am I going to find a dealership that’s open?
Moe: That’s nothing. The other day, my manager told me to go to his house and check if he’s home. He has a cell phone! Why do I need to waste time making a trip there when he could just call and check if he’s home?
