Hopefully, you’ve been on the Internet long enough for someone (likely, a parent) to have forwarded to you the following old meme about how tired you are from being overworked:
Yes, I’m tired.
For several years I’ve been blaming it on getting older, lack of sleep, weekend projects, stale office air, poor nutrition, carrying a couple of extra pounds, raising a family, recent ailments, and a dozen other reasons that make you wonder why life is getting tough.
But now I found out what’s really happening! I’m tired because I’m overworked.
The population of the USA reached 300 million last October.
79 million of the population are retired. That leaves 221 million to do the work.
There are 19 million toddlers and 76 million students in schools, which leaves 126 million to do the work.
Of that total, 21 million are unemployed leaving 105 million to do the work.
Then you take away 34 million in hospitals and that leaves 71 million to do the work.
43 million are in prisons and that’s 28 million left to do the work.
Now take away 14,683,468 federal, 5,344,722 state and 5,370,743 city workers who run our government and you’re left with 2,601,067 to do the work.
Take away the 2,601,065 people in the armed forces and that leaves just two people to do the work, you and me.
And you’re just sitting there reading this!
No wonder I’m tired!!!
