The Superstitious Boss

Apply your Mind

Ramlal is a night watchman in a large company. On one fine morning when Ramlal was about to leave for home, his boss informs him, “I’ll go for a business trip to Colombo. Tomorrow I will depart from Chennai airport”.

Ramlal, however advises him to take a ship.

“Why should I?” inquired the boss.

“Yesterday night I dreamt that the plane to Colombo crashes, just before it will land”, is the response from Ramlal.

The president smiles first, but since he is pretty superstitious he decides to take the ship. When he arrives in Colombo, he is told that the plane which he should have taken had crashed. When the president returns from the trip, he gives a big reward to Ramlal and immediately fires him. Why?

  1. to all who answere can i ask one thing…as a night watchman he ll sleep in morning know..so he might got the dream in morning..

    1. Read the content carefully, the watchman says “Yesterday night I dreamt that the plane to Colombo crashes, just before it will land”, . He is a night watchman and says he dreamt it yesterday night.

  2. President fired the night watchman because he is not doing his duty as night watchman. When president asked him, why should i travel in ship? for this the watchman replied that he dreamt of crash of plane going for Colombo.He is not working for the company, thats he is fried from the company

    Hewas rewarded for giving right information at the right time, for not to travel in the plane.

  3. the president first rewarded him because he saved his life..but inturn his boss still must have taken the flight and died in the crash ..which could have been avoided…if ramlal would make his boss believe him.

  4. he rewarded the watchman because watchman saved his life by warning him that the plane to Colombo crashes, just before it will land.He fired him because when he knew abt the crash why he is not tell it to the airport security,he can save more lives…he only save his boss life,because his boss pays him…now frm next tym ramlal think abt othrs also…thats d lessn…

  6. he rewarded the watchman because watchman saved his life by warning him that the plane to Colombo crashes, just before it will land.He fired him because the job of watchman is to watch not to sleep while he is on duty. 🙂
