My neighbor knocked on my door at 2:30am this morning, can you believe that… 2:30am!!! Luckily for him I was still up practicing with my Bagpipes.
The Department of Labor claimed a small soybean farmer was not paying proper wages to his help, and so sent an agent out to investigate.
Department of Labor employee: “I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.”
Farmer: “Well, there’s my farm hand who’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board.
Then there’s the mentally challenged worker. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night to help him cope with life. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally.”
Department of Labor employee : “That’s the guy I want to talk to, the mentally challenged one.”
Farmer : “That would be me!”
