Hi everyone,

********
After 10 years of selfless service, a man realized that he has not been promoted, no transfer. No salaries increase, No any recommendation and that the company is not doing any thing about it. So he decided to walk up to his boss one morning and after exchanging greetings, He told his boss his observation. The boss looked at him, laughed and asked him to sit down saying; My friend, you have not worked here for even one day. The man was surprised to hear this, but the boss went on to explain.

Boss: - How many days are there in a year?
Man: - 365 days and sometimes 366
Boss : - How many hours make up a day?
Man: - 24 hours
Boss: - How long do you work in a day?
Man: - 8am to 4pm. i.e. 8 hours a day.
Boss: - So, what fraction of the day do you work in hours?
Man: - (He did some arithmetic and said 8/24 hours i.e. 1/3(one third)
Boss: - That is nice of you! What is one-third of 366 days?
