The road to recovery
West Crete Journal, August 2005

Zef the Albanian worker telephones his boss at work and says, "Sorry boss, I can't come to work today, I'm ill.  I've got a headache, stomach ache and my legs hurt. I really can't come to work."

Antonis the Greek boss says, "You know, Zef, I really need you at work today. When I feel like this I go to my wife and ask her to make love. That makes everything better and then I go to work. You try that."

Two hours later Zef calls again: "Boss, I did what you said and I feel great. I'll be at work soon. You've got a very nice house."
