$75,000 a year salary!

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

Engineer: "In the neighborhood of $75,000 a year, depending on the benefit's package."

HR Person: "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?"

Engineer: "Wow!!! Are you kidding?"

HR Person: "Certainly, but you started it."
