Interim Management Jokes

I’ve posted jokes on various topics and sometimes do get requests. My colleague Martin suggested a topic of interim management for this week’s one liners, which is rather specific, but I think there are a few out there… As normal, these Interim Management Jokes come with no guarantee of funniness or originality.



A friend of mine said he had a job managing the local bowling alley. “ten pin?”, I asked. “No, permanent”.

A friend gave up his job as a shepherd as every time he tried to count his flock, he fell asleep.

A friend of mine lost his job at a fish supplies company. He opened a whole can of worms.

A friend got fired because his communication skills were not good enough. He didn’t know what to say.

Another friend got a job as a postman. On his first day, he was handed a letter. He looked at it, and thought “this isn’t for me”.
