Funnies

Your County at Work!

A fellow stopped at a rural gas station and, after filling his tank, he paid the bill and bought a soft drink. He stood by his car to drink his cola and he watched a couple of men working along the roadside. One man would dig a hole two or three feet deep and then move on. The other man came along behind and filled in the hole. While one was digging a new hole, the other was about 25 feet behind filling in the old. The men worked right past the fellow with the soft drink and went on down the road. “I can’t stand this,” said the man tossing the can in a trash container and heading down the road toward the men.

“Hold it, hold it,” he said to the men. “Can you tell me what’s going on here with this digging?”

“Well, we work for the county government, ” one of the men said.

“But one of you is digging a hole and the other is filling it up. You’re not accomplishing anything. Aren’t you wasting the county’s money?”

“You don’t understand, mister,” one of the men said, leaning on his shovel and wiping his brow. “Normally there’s three of us–me, Rodney and Mike. I dig the hole, Rodney sticks in the tree and Mike here puts the dirt back.”

“Yea,” piped up Mike. “Now just because Rodney’s sick, that don’t mean we can’t work, does it?”

  1. I’m not at all surprised….government and unions aren’t always loaded with noodles. 🙂
    The waste management folks here are unionized. They had a truck down one day. The driver of that truck was riding in a truck with one of the other crews. They dropped her off at the store where we were helping a friend. They never came back to get her. She stayed there scratching lottery tickets. She said they had to pay her anyway, whether she sat on her tail at home or in a convenience store scratching tickets, or rode in the truck.

    Have a blessed weekend, Vanessa. 🙂

    1. Yeah, unions are like that. I saw a story some time back about auto workers sitting in the break room all day – for weeks and months – getting paid not to work, because there wasn’t enough work for them but the union prevented them from being laid off. $30 an hour! And we wonder why cars are so expensive! Crazy, no?

      You have a blessed week, too, sweetheart! ❤
