There was a man who decided to ask his BOSS for a RAISE in SALARY. It was Friday. He told his WIFE that morning what he was about to do. All day long the man felt NERVOUS and APPREHENSIVE. Late in the afternoon he summoned the COURAGE to approach his

employer. To his delight, the BOSS agreed to the RAISE.



The man arrived home to a BEAUTIFUL TABLE set with their best CHINA. Candles were lighted. His WIFE prepared a FESTIVE meal. Immediately he figured that someone from the office had tipped her off. Finding his WIFE in the kitchen he told her the GOOD NEWS. They EMBRACED and KISSED, then sat down to a wonderful MEAL.



Next to his plate the man found a beautiful HAND-WRITTEN CARD. It read: “Congratulations, darling! I knew you’d get the RAISE! These things will tell you how much I LOVE and APPRECIATE you.”



While on his way to the kitchen to get DESSERT, he noticed that a second CARD had fallen from his wife’s pocket. Picking it off the floor it read: “Darling, don’t worry about not getting the RAISE. You DESERVE it anyway! These things will tell you how much I LOVE and APPRECIATE you.”
