OF COURSE I'M TIRED
Yes, I'm tired. For a couple years I've been blaming
it on iron, poor blood, lack of vitamins, dieting and a dozen other maladies. But now I found
out, it ain't that. I'm tired because I'm overworked.
The population of this country is 237 million. 104 million are retired.
That leaves 133 million to do the work.
There are 85 million in school, which leave 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.
Four million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 15 million to do the
Take from the total the 14,800,000 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.
Boy Oh Boy..
And you're sitting there reading this. No wonder I'm tired; I'm the
only one working.
