Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Person asked the young engineer, who was fresh out of MIT, "What starting salary were you thinking about."

"In the neighborhood of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package." The engineer replied.

"Well, would you say to a package of 5 weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years, say, a red Corvette?" replied the HR person.

The engineer sat up straight and said, "Wow! Are you kidding?"

The interviewer replied, "Yeah, but you started it."
