Why accountants laugh
In the accounts department most activities are prefixed. But not everything. For instance if a company works with cost centers it is sometimes not really clear where to enter it. Is it administration? Or is perhaps an employee responsible for the costs. In every firm are nicer people and not so nice people, it is everywhere the same. So today we had an invoice in our hand, we looked at it and asked us which cost center we should use. We could use administration, but we could also enter the amount at another account ......Did you get it. We looked at each other, understanding was there at once, in a fracture of a second we laughed loudly. It was not administration where we entered it.
That's our view when we stand in the smoking corner. She smokes, I take a break without smoking.
