Raffling His Salary

food for thought header 2
City of London bankers were quite amazed at the high standard of living being enjoyed by one of their most trusted clerks. He was earning $25 a week and spending at least $75. With no private income he ran an expensive car, had a luxurious flat. The staff manager was asked to call the clerk to his office, when he asked him a few tactful questions.

“Look here,” he said, “you are earning $25 a week and spending at least $75; how can you do it?”

“Simple,” replied the clerk without the slightest embarrassment. “There are 300 employees in the building. I raffle my salary among them every week. Each pays 25¢ per ticket and the winner gets my salary. Sometimes I sell 250, sometimes 350 tickets.”
