After 2 years of selfless service, a man realized that he has not been promoted, no transfer, no salary increase, no commendation and that the company is not doing any thing about it. So he decided to walk up to his manager one morning and after exchanging greetings, he told his manager his observation. The boss looked at him, laughed and asked him to sit down saying; “My friend, you have not worked here for even one day“. The man was surprised to hear this, but the manager went on to explain.
