A sales rep was driving along in his car, and as he drove, his phone rang. It was his boss, calling to say, "You've been promoted to regional sales manager."
The car swerved slightly, then righted itself.
The boss rang up a second time and said, "You've been promoted again, to national sales manager."
And the car swerved again.
Then the boss rang up a third time and said, "You've been promoted to managing director."
The car swerved so violently that it came off the road and crashed into a tree.
The driver was unhurt, but the police were called. On arrival, the policeman took out his notebook and said, "Can you tell me, sir, exactly what happened."
The driver replied, "I careered off the road."
