One day the directors of a Chicago finance company were called in to a chairman’s office until only the newest, most junior executive was left sitting nervously outside. Finally it was his turn to be summoned. He entered the office to find the chairman and other eight directors seated solemnly around a table. Suddenly the chairman turned to the young man and asked: “Have you ever slept with Miss Foyt, my secretary?”
“No, certainly not.”
“Are you absolutely sure?” persisted the chairman.
“Absolutely. I’ve never laid a finger on her.”
“You’d swear to that on a stack of bibles?”
“Yes, I swear I’ve never had a sexual relationship with your secretary.”
“Good. Then you fire her.”
