Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Friday, December 30

Work ethic?

A passerby was startled to notice two men -- not that they were working alongside the road, but that after one man dug holes two or three feet deep, the other man came along behind him and filled them up. "Hold it, hold it," the fellow said to the men. "Can you tell me what is going on here with this digging?"

"Well, we work for the county government," one of the men said. (Which may explain everything right there.)

"But one of you is digging a hole and the other is filling it up. You are not accomplishing anything. Aren't you wasting the county's money?"

"You don't understand, mister," explained the other man, leaning on his shovel and wiping his brow. "Normally there's three of us, me, Joe and Mike. I dig the hole, Joe sticks in the tree, and Mike here puts the dirt back."

"Yeah," piped up Mike. "Now, just because Joe is sick, that doesn't mean we can't work, does it?"
