bill and bought a soft drink. He stood by his car to drink his cola and
watched a couple of men working along the roadside. One man would dig a hole
two or three feet deep and then move on. The other man came along behind him
and filled in the hole. While one was digging a new hole, the other was 25
feet behind filling in the hole. The men worked right past the guy with the
soft drink and went on down the road.
"I can't stand this," said the man tossing the can into a trash container and
heading down the road toward the men. "Hold it, hold it," he said to the men.
"Can you tell me what's going on here with all this digging and refilling?"
"Well, we work for the government and we're just doing our job," one of the
men said. "But one of you is digging a hole and the other fills it up. You're
not accomplishing anything. Aren't you wasting the taxpayers' money?"
"You don't understand, mister," one of the men said, leaning on his shovel
and wiping his brow. "Normally there's three of us: me, Elmer and Leroy. I
dig the hole, Elmer sticks in the tree and Leroy, here, puts the dirt back.
Now just because Elmer's sick, that don't mean that Leroy and me can't work."
