HumouR Us... 
It has been reported, that those working in Human Resources are amongst the unhappiest workers in the United Kingdom... There are occasions when the nature of our work perhaps puts us in a more sombre mood than most, but that's not always the case and there can be a lighter side to our work too - even some humour on occasions and we will be using this space to share some of the funnier aspects of our work. Some of the stories will be true; others will be entirely fiction - but in all cases, names will be with-held to protect the guilty!!!! 

More of an accountants theme... 
... this week; but who said Accountants and HR couldn't work together...

HMRC decides to audit Grandpa, and summons him to the HMRC office. The Auditor was not surprised when Grandpa showed up with his Lawyer. 
 
The auditor said, 'Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment, which you explain by saying that you win money gambling. I'm not sure the HMRC finds that believable.' 
I'm a great gambler, and I can prove it,' says Grandpa. 'How about a demonstration? ' . The Auditor thinks for a moment and says, 'Okay. Go ahead.' 
 
Grandpa says, 'I'll bet you a thousand pounds that I can bite my own eye.' The Auditor thinks a moment and says, 'It's a bet.' Grandpa removes his glass eye and bites it. The Auditor's jaw drops. 
 
Grandpa says, 'Now, I'll bet you two thousand pounds that I can bite my other eye.' Now the Auditor can tell Grandpa isn't blind, so he takes the bet. Grandpa removes his dentures and bites his good eye. 
 
The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand, with Grandpa's Lawyer as a witness. He starts to get nervous. 'Want to go double or nothing?' Grandpa asks 'I'll bet you six thousand pounds that I can stand on one side of your desk and pee into that wastebasket on the other side and never get a drop anywhere in between.' 
 
The Auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there's no way this old guy could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees again. 
 
Grandpa stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can't make the stream reach the wastebasket on the other side, so he pretty much urinates all over the Auditor's desk. The Auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major loss into a huge win. But Grandpa's Lawyer moans and puts his head in his hands. 
'Are you okay?' the Auditor asks. 
 
'Not really,' says the Lawyer. 'This morning, when Grandpa told me he'd been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty-five thousand pounds that he could come in here and pee all over your desk and that you'd be happy about it!!!'
