Thought for the week – 7

I promised last week that we’d lighten up this week, so here we go with a joke I unearthed:

    The population of this country (the USA) is 237 million. 104 million are retired.
    That leaves 133 million to do the work.

    There are 85 million in school, which leaves 48 million to do the work.

    Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government. This leaves 19 million to do the work.

    4 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 15 million to do the work.

    Take from the total the 14.8 million people who work for State and City Government and that leaves 200,000 to do the work.

    There are 188,000 in hospitals, so that leaves 12,000 to do the work.

    Now, there are 11,998 people in Prisons. That leaves Just two people to do the work. You and me.

And you’re just sitting there reading jokes all day!

Oops! better get back to work…

"I was very impressed by Linda's determination to help and the constructive, but persistent, manner in which she identified issues and then tried to resolve them. After recent progress I was again reaching a stage where I seemed to be spinning my wheels, and she has given me fresh impetus to start moving forward again."
