Accounting

Fresh out of business school, the young man answered a want
ad for an accountant. He was being interviewed by a very
nervous man who ran a three-man business.

“I need someone with an accounting degree,” the man said.
“But mainly, I’m looking for someone to do my worrying for
me.”

“Excuse me?” the young accountant said.

“I worry about a lot of things,” the man said. “But I don’t
want to have to worry about money. Your job will be to take
all the money worries off my back.”

“I see,” the young accountant said. “And how much does the
job pay?”

“I will start you at eighty-five thousand dollars.”

“Eighty-five thousand dollars!” the young man exclaimed.
“How can such a small business afford a sum like that?”

“That,” the owner said, “is your first worry.”
