Miss Hathaway, are you responsible for the employees of this bank referring to me as Ebeneezer Scrooge? –No, why do you ask? –When I came through the lobby just now they all chanted in unison 'Here come da Scrooge! Here come da Scrooge!
Most places do something for their employees at this time of year. –Well, I've given them Christmas Day off. –Chief, most banks even give a holiday bonus. –I've already thought of that. –You have? –Just this morning I said to myself, 'Milburn, you've got to give those loyal employees of yours a Christmas bonus. –But, Chief, that's extraordinary! –I thought so, too. Fortunately, a cold shower brought me to my senses.
