Pet Store

A tourist walked into a pet store and was looking at the animals on display. While he was there, a manager from Air New Zealand Personnel Services Group walked in and said to the shopkeeper, "I'll take a mechanic monkey, please."

The man nodded, went to a cage at the side of the store and took out a monkey. He put a collar and leash on the animal and handed it the manager saying, "That'll be $1,000." The manager paid and left with the monkey. Surprised, the tourist went to the shopkeeper and said, "That was a very expensive monkey. Most of them are only a few hundred dollars. Why did that one cost so much?" The shopkeeper answered, "Ah, that was a mechanic monkey. He can rig aircraft flight controls, service aircraft on turns, work on engines, and perform all general maintenance functions, and does it with no back talk or complaints. It's well worth the money."

The tourist spotted a monkey in another cage. "That one's even more Expensive --$10,000! What does it do?"
Oh, that one is a "Maintenance Supervisor" monkey; it can instruct at all levels of maintenance, supervise maintenance at the hangar and on the line, schedule major overhauls, and is proficient with many computer programs. A very useful monkey indeed," replied the shopkeeper.

The tourist looked around a little longer and found a third monkey in a cage. The price tag read, "$50,000". The shocked tourist exclaimed, "That one costs more than all the others put together! What in the world could it do?"

"Well, I've never actually seen him do anything but drink beer and play with himself, but his papers say he's a Pilot……...."
:oops: :twisted:
