Thoughts To Live By…

Archive for the ‘Animation’ Category

For a couple years I’ve been blaming it on lack of sleep and too much pressure from my job, 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,
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 Governments
and that leaves
1.4 million to do the work.
At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals,
1,212,000 to do the work.
Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons.
That leaves just 2 people to do the work.
You and Me.
And you are sitting at your computer reading jokes…
No Wonder Why…


So you want a day off.
Let’s take a look at what you are asking for:
There are 365 days per year available for work.
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 only 91 days available.
You spend 30 minutes each day on coffee break,
which counts for 23 days each year,
leaving only 68 days available.
With a 1 hour lunch each day,
you 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 per year available for work.
We are off 5 holidays per year,
so your available working time is down to 15 days.
We generously give 14 days vacation per year,
which leaves only 1 day available for work and
I’ll be darned if you are going to take that day off!
