office conversationAs a sales rep for a publisher of accounting reference materials, I was talking to a customer about a guide to assist with preparing for an audit.

The way she described their organization led me to believe they might have an internal audit department.

I asked, "Do you have an in-house auditor?"

"No," she answered. "We have an outhouse auditor."

It was almost three minutes before either of us could stop laughing and continue our conversation.
