Sounds like a fair deal.
Because he could only count on his fingers.
I had to look it up, I thought Woody Allen made some comment along this line that stuck in my head.
The exact line was “My father worked for the same firm for twelve years. They fired him. They replaced him with a tiny gadget – this big – that does everything my father does, only it does it much better. The depressing thing is, my mother ran out and bought one.”
Replacing him with a Radio Shack Blackjack Calculator would improve productivity.
That just doesn’t add up.
Brimswell must actually be pretty “talented” (being traded to Accounting – replacing 3 calculators and a fax machine) – unless they’re going to pay him the same as what they “paid” the calculators and fax machine.
The 1970’s called and asked for their joke back.
I found in my deceased parents’ house the first electronic calculator we owned. It had a ground plug on its cord (didn’t use batteries). It was about the size of a nice bible and had 10 blue number LEDs. I was the first to use a calculator for my school homework. The teacher could tell because I showed 8 digit accuracy on homework problems vs. the typical 3 using a slide rule.
But, Sir…I used the fax machine to meet girls!
Looks like a demented six year old and a joke book would have been a fair trade.
Is there an orthodontist in the house?
Someone got robbed. Love the hair! :)
