The chairman of the board had to make an important speech to the shareholders and, as usual, he delegated the job of writing the speech to his secretary. 'Miss Perkins, just put something together for me, will you. You know all the facts and figures. Write me something pithy and concise - about twenty minutes should do.'
When he returned to the office after the meeting, he was in a furious temper. 'What's the idea of writing me a one-hour speech?' he stormed. 'Half the audience walked out in disgust before I'd finished!'
'I wrote you a twenty-minute speech as you asked, sir,' said the secretary, 'But if you remember, you asked me to make two extra copies.'
