There once was a land, far, far away, that housed the greatest cookies of all time.
There was oatmeal, chocolate chip, raisin, and whatever kinds of cookies you eat
nowadays. Right in the middle of the land was a prosperous cookie factory called
Cookie Cookers. But one day, a jealous man decided that he wanted to build a bigger
and better cookie factory and produce wonderful cookies. So he decided to steal the
Cookie Cookers' recipe.
First, he applied for a job at Cookie Cookers. He was given the job of Packager which
packed the cookies into bags and boxes. He worked day and night, hoping to earn the
boss's trust. He was finally named the most Efficient Hard Worker and the boss was
delighted to have someone who worked so hard for him. The boss decided to get to know
the man, so he called him to his office.
"Hello, my Efficient Hard Worker! What is your name?" the boss asked.
"My name," the man paused, "Is Man. Nice to meet you."
"Ah, well, Man, would you like a promotion?"
"You shall get one. You shall be the Packaging Supervisor. So, tell me, Man, what do
you plan on doing after you obtain my secret recipe?"
Man replied without hesitating, "I shall build a new fabulous company to override
your--" Man froze and looked at the boss.
The boss was glaring right back at him. "I knew it. No one ever works this hard
without wanting something back in return," he snarled. "Now get out of my factory!"
And so Man was kicked out of the factory by the security guards and he was bitter for
the rest of his life.
