Employee: Boss, our worries are over! I know how to rent that place on Main Street.
Boss: Great! How?
The employee holds up a sign for the boss to read.
Boss: “Always make new mistakes.”
Employee: Before you say thank you, let me first say ‘you’re welcome.’
Boss: Johnson, when trying to drum up investors, it’s best not to remind them that they could be making a mistake.
Employee: How’s this then?
The employee takes out another sign.
Boss: “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again.”
Boss: Why don’t you just write, “This is a bad idea,” and call it a day.
Employee: Hey, that’s not a bad idea!
Boss: Dammit man, stop reminding people of failure!
Employee: Boss, I read that 90% of businesses fail within the first five years. That’s a lot of businesses!
Boss: Johnson, we want the 10% of businesses that succeed!
Employee: Yeah, but those people are too smart to open a store downtown.
Boss: Dammit, you’re right. Let’s go with “Always make new mistakes.”
