saw this on the net just now and thought... *wow, aint that strange*

uv probs seen it before, but hey. here it is

Im tired!

Yes, I'm tired. For several years, I've been blaming it on middle age, iron, poor blood, lack of vitamins, air pollution, water pollution, saccharin, obesity, dieting, under-arm odor, and a dozen
other maladies that make you wonder if life is really worth living.

But now I found out, it ain't that.

I'm tired because I'm overworked.

The population of this country is 250 Million. 104 Million are retired. That leaves 146 Million to do the work. There are 90 Million in school, which leaves 66 Million to o the work. Of this total, there are 32 Million employed by the government.

That leaves 34 Million to do the work.

Five Million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 29 Million to do the work. Take from that the 28,700,000 people who work for State and City Government and that leaves 300,000 to do the work. There are 248,000 in hospitals, so that leaves 52,000 to do the work.

Now, there are 51,998 people in jails or prisons. That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me.

And you're sitting there reading this.

No wonder I'm tired!
