The Government said, "Someone may steal from the scrap yard at night." So they created a night watchman position and hired a person (bilingual, naturally) for the job. Then the Government said, "How can the watchman do his job without instruction?" So they created a Planning Department and hired two people; one person to write the job description and one person to do time studies. Then the Government said, "How will we know the night watchman is performing the tasks correctly?" So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people; one to do the studies and one to write the reports. Then the Government said, "How are these people going to get paid?" So they created the following positions: a Time Keeper and a Payroll Officer; then hired two more people to assist. Then the Government said, "Who will be accountable for all of these people?" So they created an Administrative Section and hired three people: an Administrative Officer, an Assistant Administrative Officer and a Legal Secretary. Then the Government said, "We have had this organization in operation for only one year and we are $180,000 over budget; we must cut back our overall costs." So they laid off the night watchman. ______________________________________________________ If I had a dollar for every girl that found me unattractive, they'd eventually find me attractive. ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Gene Hicks, 35, Miami, Floriduh Miami man claimed IHOP meal didn’t agree with him. So he stabbed his waiter. Whether IHOP patron Gene Hicks consumed the Belgian waffle, the chicken cordon bleu or the Rooty Tooty Fresh ‘n’ Fruity, he returned to the establishment Friday afternoon a dissatisfied customer, according to North Miami Police. Hicks registered his complaint in the sharp language of a knife stabbed into his waiter, police say. The waiter was ferried to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Hicks is restricted to the less rich cuisine of Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Any switch to Denny’s might have to wait. He already was out on felony bond on a charge of battery on an elderly victim, a 77-year- old man. North Miami Police say Hicks ate at the IHOP at 12875 Biscayne Blvd Friday, then returned around 3:30 p.m. claiming he’d been poisoned. Then, he ran over and stabbed the server who’d waited on him earlier. Police arrested Hicks at the IHOP. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Daniel Re: Laptop keeps shutting off Dear Webby, my wifes laptop keeps shuting off. is there a fix for this ? daniel Dear Daniel It is probably overheating due to too many dust bunnies inside. Just open it up and save most of the screws, vacuum it out, clean all fans and heat sinks with a Q-tip and Windex, and put it back together. It should be fine again for a year. Have FUN! DearWebby it was the battery.removed it,pluged the a/c cord back in and it's running like a brand new car.of all the things that it could have been,I never even thought battery because we never use the battery,only the power chord.thank you for answering me. daniel Women spend more time wondering what men are thinking than men spend thinking.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Freeze Dumplings for Soup By kathleen williams [76 Posts, 1,658 Comments] Did you know you can freeze dumplings? I make homemade dumplings. I roll them out flat, put them in the baking pan I bake biscuits in, let them freeze, then put them in an empty plastic cereal bag. I roll the top down and close it with a clothes pin. When ready to use them, get the broth you will use boiling hot. Break the dumplings into pieces, about an inch square, and drop into broth. This saves lot of time. Good luck.

However, while working as a volunteer, I found one elderly gentleman--already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet--who insisted he didn't need my help to leave the hospital. After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator. On the way down I asked if his wife was meeting him. "I don't know," he said. "She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her silly hospital gown." ____________________________________________________
