A businessman met with his new son-in-law.

He said, “I love my daughter, and now I welcome you into the family. We care for you very much. I am going to show you how much. I’m making you a 50% partner in my business. Just go to the factory every day and learn the operations. ”

The son-in-law interrupted. “I hate factories. I can’t stand the noise. ”

“I see,” replied the father-in-law. “Well, you can start in the office. You’ll take charge of some of the operations. ”

“I hate office work,” said the son-in-law. “I can’t stand being behind a desk. ”

“Wait a minute,” said the father-in-law. “I made you half-owner of a business. But you don’t like factories and you won’t work in a office. What am I going to do with you? ”

“That’s easy,” said the young man. ” Buy back my half of the business.”
