Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Person asked the young engineering grad fresh out of MIT, "And what starting salary were you looking for?"

The engineering grad said, "In the neighborhood of $75,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."

The HR person said, "Well, what would you say to a package of 5-weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years, say a red Corvette?"

The engineer sat up straight and said, "Wow!!! Are you kidding?"

And the HR person said, "Of course,...but you started it."
