Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Officer asked a young accountant fresh out of a very prestigious university, "And what starting salary were you looking for?" 

The accountant replies, "In the region of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package." 

The interviewer enquires, "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 accountant sits up straight and says, "Wow! Are you kidding?" 

The interviewer replies, "Yeah, but you started it."
