Driving home one evening, my boss called me and informed me that he had promoted me. The surprise caused me to swerve the car. A few minutes later, he called again to say that he was making me vice-president of the company. The shock caused me to swerve the car more than previously. A further five minutes on, he calls me again to say that he wants me to become president. The shock causes me to completely lose control of the car and I hit a lamp post.
When the police arrived, and asked what caused the accident I replied, “Don’t know, I just careered off the road!”
