Working hours

A farmer and his recently hired hand were eating an early breakfast of biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon and coffee that the farmer's wife had prepared for them.

Thinking of all the work they had to get done that day, the farmer told the hired man he might as well go ahead and eat his dinner too.

The hired man didn't say a word, but filled his plate a second time and proceeded to eat.

After awhile the farmer said, "We've got so much work to do today, you might as well eat your supper now too."

Again, the hired man didn't respond but refilled his plate a third time and continued to eat.

Finally, after eating his third plate of food, the hired man pushed back his chair & began to take off his shoes.

"What are you doing?" the farmer asked.

The hired man replied, "I don't work after supper."

Turning out just fine

A little boy asked his father for assistance in repairing his broken wagon.  When the job was done, the boy looked up and said, "Daddy, when I try to do things by myself, they go wrong.  But when you and I work together, they turn out just fine."

Counting the Days

A fellow colleague from our company had only a few months left on the job, and he could always be heard ticking off the weeks, days, hours, and minutes.

Our boss was not amused. "I've been on the job for 43 years, and I've never counted off the days until I'm outta here," he said to me.

I couldn't help agreeing with him. "That's because everyone else is counting for you."

Doctor's Orders

"You're going out to play golf again?" Glenn's wife complained.

"I'm only following doctors orders."

"Do I look stupid to you?!"

"But it's true," he said, while walking out the door. "Dr. Wilson told me specifically that I should get some iron every day."
