In a well known fortune 500 company the employee lounge was seldom used. As executives walked by the lounge each day they noticed a man with his feet up, shoes off and a loosened tie watching the television.
The next day the man was still there and so on. After a week or so talk around the water fountain led many employees to band together and confront the man.
The group met at the employee lounge and asked the man, "Why are you here and who hired you?"
After swallowing the popcorn he replied, "The CEO is so busy he hired me to watch TV for him."
