cpa jokeA modern-day CPA recovers his composure after doing some tricky sums.
  • marvels at non-accounting colleagues who guiltlessly work from home or leave early on a Friday
  • always seems to miss a trick when it comes to claiming expenses or receiving above-inflation pay rises

  •   has made a lifetime vow never to take a holiday at month end

  •    spends more evenings with the office cleaner than with their partner

  •   sorts out all the mess

  •    reports to anybody who may be interested on where it all went so horribly wrong ...and...

  •    solves a problem you didn't know you had, in a way you don't understand, at a price you can't afford!

A CPA is a person who:


  • displays deviant behaviour when it comes to numbers
  •   can do tricky sums
  •  experiences an inner peace in the knowledge that debits should always equal credits
  •   knows the inner thrill of viewing a well structured Chart of Accounts
  •  gasps at the majestic splendour of a Trial Balance
