Can a CEO ever screw up?


imageA notable firm hired a new CEO. determined to purge the company of slackers. On a tour of the facilities, the He noticed a guy leaning against a wall. The plant was full of workers and he wanted to let them know he meant business.

He asked the guy, "How much money do you make a week?"
Surprised, the young man looked at him and said, "I make $400 a week. Why?"

The CEO said, "Wait right here." and went back to his office.

He came back in two minutes, and handed the guy $1,600, "Here's four weeks' pay. Now GET OUT and don't come back."

Feeling pretty good the CEO looked around the room and asked, "Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did around here?"

From across the room a voice said, "He’s the Pizza delivery guy from Domino's."
