Tired

 For a couple years I've been blaming it on lack of sleep and too much partying, but now I found out the real reason: 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 leaves 48 million to do the work. Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government, leaving 19 million to do the work.

2.8 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 16.2 million to do the work.

Take from the total the 14,800,000 people who work for State and City Government 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 you're sitting there reading jokes

  2. "Strategy?" Yeah, I walked into my boss, a nurse manager of the department and told her I am retiring, I need the form that says "I RETIRE!" I gave her two weeks to my retirement date, she wanted four because I was a Charge Nurse. Nope was my comeback and it stuck, she is lucky I graciously was sticking around for two...
