Tom walks into his boss’s office.
“Sir, I know things aren’t going the best around here but I’ve recently been contacted by three companies. I’d like a raise.”
Worried about losing a good employee, Tom’s boss agrees. They settle on a five per cent raise and settle the paperwork.
As Tom gets up to leave, his boss can’t help but ask the question. “What companies contacted you?”
“Oh,” says Tom. “Cable, electric and water.”
