Description: Why Fire the Secretary?
   One man was explaining to another why he fired his secretary:

     Two weeks ago, it was my 45th birthday, and I wasn't feeling too hot
     when I got up that morning anyway. I went into my breakfast knowing
     that my wife would be pleasant and say "Happy Birthday" and probably
     have a present for me, but she didn't even say "Good Morning."

     I said,"Well, that's a wife for you, the children will remember." The
     children came into breakfast and didn't say a word. When I started to
     the office, I was feeling very low and despondent.

     As I walked inti my office, Janet said, "Good Morning,boss... Happy
     Birthday." Then I felt a little better that someone remembered.

     I worked until noon. About noon she knocked at the door and said, "you
     know, it's such a beautiful day outside, and it's your birthday. Let's
     go out to lunch- just you and me ". So I said, "That's the best thing
     I've heard all day.Let's go".

     We went to lunch. We didn't go to the place we usually went to.
     Instead we went to a little place in the country, which was more
     private.We had two martinis, and lunch was tremendous. We enjoyed it a
     lot. On the way back to the office, she said,"You know. it's such a
     beautiful day. Do we have to go back to the office?" I said, "No, I
     guess not".

     She said, "let's go over to my apartment and I'll fix yu another
     martini". We went to her apartment.We enjoyed another martini and
     smoked a cigarette. she said, "If you don't mind, I think I'll go into
     the bedroom and change into something more comfortable." I said," OK"
     as I didn't mind a bit.

     She went into the bedroom, and in about five mintues she came out of
     the bedroom carrying a large birthday cake, followed by my wife and
     children, and they were all singing "Happy Birthday."

     And there I sat with nothing on but my socks.
