    If you've ever worked for a boss that reacts before getting the facts and thinking things through, you will love this story.....

    Arcelor-Mittal Steel, feeling it was time for a shake-up, hired a new CEO and he was determined to rid the company of all slackers.

    On a tour of the facilities, the new CEO noticed a guy leaning against a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business. He walked up to the guy at the wall and asked, 'How much money do you make a week?'
    A little surprised, the young man looked at him and replied, 'I make about $400 a week. Why?'

    The CEO then handed the guy $1,600 in cash and screamed, 'Here's four weeks' pay, now GET OUT and don't come back!' The guy left without saying a word to the CEO.

    Feeling pretty good about himself, the CEO looked around the room and asked, 'Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did here? ' From across the room came a voice, 'He's the pizza delivery guy from Domino's.'

    I've worked places where they hired consultants just like that - no brains, but very good at kissing up for big bucks!

    This is so true! I worked through many CEO's at the company where I was employed. The smartest one knew how to hire people smarter then him. The others were really arrogant and dumb just like this! What amazed me was, each one re decorated his office. I mean really redecorated to the tune of $100,000 plus and they all thought they deserved it. Each one was a creep. I've never met a CEO of any big company that I would invite to my home.
