A story of Self Appraisal

A little boy went to a Telephone booth which was at the cash counter of a store & dialed a number.
The store-Owner observed and listened to the  Conversation: 

Boy: "Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn? 

Woman: (at the other end of the phone line) "I  already have someone to cut my lawn." 

Boy: "Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price than
 the person who cuts your lawn now." 

Woman: I'm very satisfied with the person who is  presently cutting my lawn. 

Boy: (with more perseverance) "Lady, I'll even sweep the floor & the stairs of your house for free.

Woman: No, thank you.

With a smile on his face, the little  boy end call with thank you. 

The Store-owner, who was listening to all this,  walked over to the boy. 

Store Owner: "Son...I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit & would like to offer you a job." 

Boy: "No thanks, 

Store Owner:  But you were really pleading for one.

Boy: No Sir, I was just  checking my performance at the job I already have.

This is called "Self  Appraisal"
