A Safety Officer was walking along the beach when he stumbled upon an unusual old lamp. He picked it up and cleaned it off, and suddenly a Genie appeared. The amazed Safety Officer asked if he was going to receive the usual three wishes.
The Genie said, "Nope...due to inflation, constant downsizing, low wages in third-world countries, and fierce global competition, I can only grant you one wish. So...what'll it be?"
The Safety Officer didn't hesitate. He said, "I want peace in the Middle East. See this map? I want these countries to stop fighting with each other."
The Genie looked at the map and exclaimed, "Cor blimey, mister! These countries have been at war for thousands of years. I'm good, but not THAT good! I don't think it can be done. Make another wish."
The Safety Officer thought for a minute and said, "Well, I've never been able to find the right job. You know, any employer that's considerate to its workers, likes to implement safety and provide adequate resources, is sensible at risk management, , doesn't make excuses for not doing something all the time, and has a zero accidents. That's what I wish for...a good employer."
The Genie let out a long sigh and said, "Let me see that map!"
