Three top motivational speakers were at a convention together, sharing the penthouse suite at the top of a 75-storey hotel. After a long day of meetings and presentations, they were dismayed to find that the lifts weren't working, and they would have to climb 75 flights of stairs to get to their room.
One of them came up with bright idea, “Let’s break the monotony of this unpleasant task by concentrating on something interesting. I’ll tell jokes for 25 flights, then one of you can sing songs for the next 25 flights and the other will tell sad stories for the rest of the way.”
At the 26th floor, he stopped telling jokes and one of the other speakers began to sing. At the 51st floor, he stopped singing and the other speaker began to tell sad stories.
“I will tell my saddest story first,” he said, “I left the room key in the car.”
