Now, That’s Self-Appraisal

Thursday Mar 12th, 2020


A boy was leaning against the wall outside a barber shop. He dialed his phone and began speaking to a lady on the other end. The barber was listening in.

Boy: Ma’am, I’m wondering if you would hire me to cut your lawn? (pause while listening) But I’ll cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now. (pause) But Ma’am, I'll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all of Palm Beach. (A moment later he hung up.)

Barber: I couldn’t help but overhear…did you get the job?

Boy: No.

Barber: Well, I like your attitude, and I’d like to offer you a job.

Boy: No thanks.

Barber: But you were begging for a job on the phone just now.

Boy: No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the job I already have. I am the one who currently cuts that lady’s lawn.
