Weekend Joke: The Farmhand and the Mentally Challenged Worker

The North Dakota Department of Governmental Oversight heard that a small Bismarck farmer was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to investigate him.

ND Gov employee: “I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.”

Farmer: “Well, there's my farmhand who's been with me for about a year. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board.

Then there's the mentally challenged worker. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally.”

ND Gov employee: “That's the guy I want to talk to...the mentally challenged one.”

Farmer: “That would be me.”
Change North Dakota to Texas and farmer to small business owner, and you've got our lives, right here. As a good friend and fellow small business owner told us when we began our company. "It's great working for yourself. You only have to work half a day. And you can pick which twelve hours!"
