    * Why I Am So Tired :: JOKE

    Why I Am So Tired

    For a couple years I've been blaming it on iron poor blood, lack of vitamins, dieting and a dozen other maladies. 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 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 work.

    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 . . . and we're sitting here reading jokes.

    I thought this one was great, what dy'a think?

    Reminds me of "The Day Off" Joke -- Not trying to hijack. I just want to share.

    So you want a day off? Let's take a look at what you are asking for!

    There are 365 days this 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 only 91 days available.

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

    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 damned if you're going to take that day off!
    You are unique, just like everyone else.
