No slackers wanted

The newly appointed CEO of Arcelor Mittal Steel a few years ago was determined to purge the company of slackers. One morning he noticed a young man leaning against a wall. So, to show he meant business, he asked him how much he got paid each week. The young man said he earned four hundred dollars. So the CEO went to his office and returned with sixteen hundred dollars. ‘Here’s four weeks’ pay.’ He said. ‘Now get out and don’t come back.’
Feeling pretty good, he looked around the room and asked, ‘Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did around here?’ From across the room a voice said, ‘He’s the Pizza delivery guy from Domino’s.’
It’s another reason why we should always take heed of that great biblical principle of not making judgements based on superficial assesments of people.
