Cajun Joke | Boudreaux Needs a Raise!


Boudreaux walked into his boss’s office.

The boss asked Boudreaux, “Boudreaux, what can I do for you?”

“Well, sir,” says Boudreaux, “I have been working for you for 10 years. I won’t beat around the bush. Sir, I would like a raise. I currently have four companies after me and so I decided to talk to you first.”

The boss clears his throat and says, “A raise? I would love to give you a raise, Boudreaux, but this is just not the right time.”

Boudreaux says, “I understand your position, and I know that the current economic downturn has had a negative impact on sales. But you must also take into consideration my hard work, pro-activeness and loyalty to this company for over a decade.”

The boss thinks a minute, then tells Boudreaux, “Taking into account these factors, and considering I don’t want to start a brain drain, I’m willing to offer you a 10% raise and an extra 5 days of vacation time. How does that sound?”

Boudreaux says, “Great! It’s a deal! Thank you, sir!”

“Before you go,” says the boss, “just out of curiosity, what companies are after you?”

Says Boudreaux, “Oh, the Electric Company, Gas Company, Water Company and the Mortgage Company!”
