Who's working anyway?

The population of this country is 300 million.


160 million are retired.

That leaves 140 million to do the work.

There are 85 million in school.

Which leaves 55 million to do the work.

Of this there are 35 million employed by the federal government.

Leaving 15 million to do the work.

2.8 million are in the armed forces preoccupied with killing Osama Bin-Laden.

Which leaves 12.2 million to do the work.

Take from that total the 10.8 million people who work for state and city governments.

And that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.

At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals.

Leaving 1,212,000 to do the work.

Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons.

That leaves just two people to do the work.

You and me.

And there you are, sitting on your butt, at your computer, reading jokes.

Nice. Real nice.

Being self-unemployed (1099 at the end of the year) I am unfortunately still working in the halls of commerce. I should have bought that annuity when I was 24

Uh-oh, found 5 million people error there. Anybody else find it?

They are the ones doing the work, and hopefully contributing to my social security starting next month!!

Actually, I'm afraid I think none of us should be retiring this early.

Happy trails, Christi

So You Want a Day Off?
There are 365 days in a year

There are 52 weeks per year in which you already have 2 days off per week, leaving 261 days available for work.

Since you spend 16 hours each day away from work, you have used up 170 days, leaving 91 days available.

You spend 30 minutes each day on coffee break. That accounts for 23 days each year, leaving only 68 days available for work.

With a one hour lunch period each day, you have used up another 46 days, leaving only 22 days available for work.

You normally spend 2 days per year on sick leave. This leaves you only 20 days available for work.

We are off for 5 holidays per year, so your available working time is down to 15 days.

We generously give you 14 days vacation per year which leaves only one day available for work and I'll be darned if you're going to take that day off.
