So I was in my car, and I was driving along, and my boss rang up and he said "You've been promoted," and I swerved.

Then he rang up a second time and said "You've been promoted again,"and I swerved again.

He rang up a third time and said "You're managing director," and I crashed into a tree. A policeman came up and said "What happened to you?"

I said "I careered off the road."
