The Board of Directors of the Company were called in to the chairman’s office one by one until only Jerry, the junior member, was left sitting outside.
Finally it was his turn to be summoned.
He entered the office to find the chairman and the other eight directors seated around a table. He was invited to join them, which he did.
As soon as he had sat down the chairman turned to Jerry and asked, “Have you ever slept with Miss Foyt, my secretary?”
“No, certainly not” Jerry replied.
“Are you absolutely sure?” asked the chairman.
“Absolutely; I’ve never laid a hand on her.”
“You’d swear to that?”
“Yes, I swear I’ve never slept with your secretary.”
“Good. Then you fire her.”
