Thanks, You’re Fired

A man is leaving on a business trip and stops by his office on the way to the airport. The night watchman stops him and says, “Sir, don’t take that flight. I had a dream last night that your plane would crash and everyone would die!” The business man cancels his trip and sure enough, the plane crashes, killing all the passengers. The man gives his watchman a $10,000 reward for saving his life, then fires him. Why?

Because his night watchman was sleeping on the job.

He was dreaming, which means he was sleeping on the job.

I can’t believe there are people smart enough to solve almost all these puzzles.

The reason why the Night watchman was fired

Because he or she is a Night watchman Guard and he was sleeping on the job. He wasn’t doing his job because he’s sleeping doing his shift and he doesn’t get paid to sleep on the job .

The accountability factor . And whatever the guidelines for failure to protect the people that you were providing nighttime security . Very dangerous place that has to have a security guard monitoring nonstop to save lives . And he was sleeping on the job . A major breakdown where the company is exposed to liability .

The bonus possibly had been set for security guard year or based on the money the company saved in reducing accidents possibly what does the Security guard measured for job performance / bonus potential for you to date performance casualty claims money that is accrued .

Or The bonus was just a big thank you to the security guard thank you for his insight and sharing his dream and saving the Director life !

He was sleeping “last night”.
Could have been his night off, a holiday, the night before he started this job, the last night of his vacation – any number of “nights” other than a “work night”.
I think he was wrongfully terminated and has a valid claim for reinstatement, maybe even a law suit!!
