    Why I Fired My Secretary

    Last week was my birthday
    and I didn't feel very well
    waking up on that morning.

    I went downstairs for breakfast
    hoping my wife would be pleasant
    and say, 'Happy Birthday!', and
    possibly have a small present for me.

    As it turned out,
    she barely said good morning,
    let alone 'Happy Birthday.'

    I thought...
    Well, that's marriage for you,
    but the kids....
    They will remember.

    My kids came bounding down stairs to
    breakfast and didn't say a word.
    So when I left for the office,
    I felt pretty low and somewhat despondent.

    As I walked into my office,
    my secretary Jane said,
    'Good Morning Boss,
    and by the way Happy Birthday! '
    It felt a little better that at least someone had remembered.

    I worked until one o'clock,
    when Jane knocked on my door
    and said, 'You know,
    It's such a beautiful day outside,
    and it is your Birthday,
    what do you say we go out to lunch,
    just you and me.'
    I said, 'Thanks, Jane,
    that's the greatest thing
    I've heard all day.
    Let's go!'

    We went to lunch.
    But we didn't go
    where we normally would go.
    She chose instead a quiet bistro
    with a private table.
    We had two martinis each
    and I enjoyed the meal tremendously.
    On the way back to the office,
    Jane said, 'You know,
    It's such a beautiful day...
    We don't need to go straight back to the office, Do We ?'

    I responded,
    'I guess not. What do you have in mind?'
    She said, 'Let's drop by my apartment,
    it's just around the corner.'

    After arriving at her apartment,
    Jane turned to me and said,
    " Boss, if you don't mind,
    I'm going to step into the bedroom
    for just a moment.
    I'll be right back."
    "Ok," I nervously replied.

    She went into the bedroom and,
    after a couple of minutes,
    she came out carrying a huge birthday cake ..
    Followed by my wife, my kids,
    and dozens of my friends and co-workers, all singing 'Happy Birthday.

    And I just sat there...

    On the couch...
