A middle management executive has to take up a sport, says his doctor, so he decides to play tennis. After a couple of weeks, his boss asks him how he’s doing.

“It’s going well,” the manager says. “When I’m on the court and I see the ball speeding towards me, my brain immediately says, ‘To the corner! Back hand! To the net! Smash! Go back!’”

“That’s great,” his boss says.

“But then my body says,” the manager continued, “Who? Me? You must be kidding!”
