Yep, I am a government employee, but you have to admit this is funny……*smirk
HOW THE GOVERNMENT WORKS
> Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the
> middle of a desert.
> Congress said, “Someone may steal from it at night.” So they
> created a night watchman position and hired a person at
> $18,000.00 a year for the job.
> Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without
> So they created a planning department and hired two people, one
> person to write the instructions for $22,000.00, and one person
> to do time studies for an additional $22,000.00 per year.
> Then Congress said, “How will we know the night watchman is
> doing the tasks correctly? So they created a Quality Control department and hired two
> people. One to do the studies for $31,000.00 and one to write
> the reports for an additional $31,000.00 per year.
> Then Congress said, “How are these people going to get paid?
> So they created the following positions, a time keeper for
> $35,000.00 annual salary, and a payroll officer for an additional $35,000.00, then hired
> two people.
> Then Congress said, “Who will be accountable for all of these
> people? So they created an administrative section and hired three
> people, an Administrative Officer at $155,000.00 per year,
> Assistant Administrative Officer $125,000.00, and a Legal
> Secretary for an additional $100,000.00 per year.
> Then Congress said, “We have had this operating for one year
> with a budget cost of $574,000.00 and we are $18,000 over
> budget. We must cutback overall cost.”
> So they laid off the night watchman.
