Corporate Lesson 1

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up
her shower when the doorbell rings. After a few seconds of arguing
over which one should go and answer the doorbell, the wife gives up,
quickly wraps herself up in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens
the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor. Before she says a
word, Bob says, "I'll give you $800 to drop that towel that you have on."
After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in
front of Bob. After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves.
Confused, but excited about her good fortune, the woman wraps back up
in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets back to
the bathroom, her husband asks from the shower "Who was that?" "It was
Bob the next door neighbor," she replies. "Great," the husband says, "did
he say anything about the 800 dollars he owes me?"

Moral of the story: If you share critical information pertaining to credit
and risk in time with your stakeholders, you may be in a position to
prevent avoidable exposure.
