"The New Guy"

The manager of a large office noticed a new man one
day and told him to come into his office.
"What is your name?" was the first thing the manager
asked the new guy.
"John," the new guy replied.
The manager scowled, "Look... I don't know what kind
of a mamby-pamby place you worked before, but I don't
call anyone by their first name. It breeds familiarity and
that leads to a breakdown in authority. I refer to my
employees by their last name only... Smith, Jones, Baker...
That's all. I am to be referred to only as Mr. Robertson.
Now that we got that straight, what is your last name?"
The new guy sighed, "Darling. My name is John Darling."
"Okay John, the next thing I want to tell you is . . . "
