Have you heard that radio commercial promoting Burger King's dollar menu? I hear a 400 times a day. Let me explain.
The conversation is between an employer and a brand new employee.
Employer: Welcome to the company. We're excited to have you on board.
Employee: Thank you, and I quit. Could I get paid now?
Employer: What? You've only been here for two seconds. You want me to give you the dollar you've earned?
Employee: Yeah. Do you have any idea what I can get for a dollar? (Employee then proceeds to explain what the BK value menu contains and what he's going to use his dollar on...blah, blah, blah)
Well, I've done the math and figured out what kind of money this moron walked away from. If this guy was paid hourly he would be making $1,800/hr. He would earn $14,400 a day, based on an eight hour day. His annual salary would be $3,744,000! Who would quit that job?! This commercial totally bugs me for that reason. Everytime I hear it, my mind starts wandering and contemplating what kind of job that must be and whether or not I'm qualified for it.
For your viewing enjoyment, I've posted one of my favorite Burger King commercials.
Hahaha! It hasn't stopped being funny.
