A guy stopped at a local gas station and, after filling his tank, he
paid the 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 cant 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 whats going on
here with all this digging and refilling?"

"Well, we work for the government and we are just doing our job," one of
the men said. "But one of you is digging a hole and the other fills it
up. You are not accomplishing anything. Arent you wasting the taxpayers

"You dont understand, mister," one of the men said, leaning on his
shovel and wiping his brow. "Normally there is three of us: me, Elmer and
Leroy. I dig the hole, Elmer sticks in the tree, and Leroy here puts the
dirt back. Elmers jobs been cut... so now it is just me an Leroy".
