Monday Boss Joke: Calling by Name

Ever have a boss that feeds off of authority? Today’s joke showcases one such boss:

A female manager of a large office noticed a new male employee and told him to come into her office.

“What is your name?” she asked the new guy.

“John,” the new guy replied.

She scowled, “Look… I don’t know what kind of a namby-pamby place you worked before, but I don’t call anyone by their first name. It breeds familiarity and that leads to a breakdown in authority. I refer to my employees by their last name only … Smith, Jones, Baker … That’s why I am to be only referred to as Mrs. Robertson. Now that we’ve got that straight, what is your last name?”

The new guy sighed, “Darling. My name is John Darling.”
