DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE POLISH MAN WHO GOT A JOB PAINTING
WHITE LINES DOWN THE MIDDLE OF A ROAD? THE FIRST DAY
ON THE JOB HE PAINTED A MILE AND THE FOREMAN THOUGHT HE
WAS DOING A REAL GREAT JOB. ON THE SECOND DAY HE PAINTED
A HALF MILE. ON THE THIRD DAY HE ONLY PAINTED A QUARTER
MILE. THE FOREMAN DECIDED THEY WOULD HAVE TO LET THE POLISH MAN GO, BECAUSE HE WAS NOT PAINTED FAR ENOUGH.
WHEN THE POLISH MAN REALIZED HE WAS GOING TO LOSE HIS
JOB HE SAID, "OF COURSE I'M PAINTING LESS EACH DAY, LOOK
HOW FAR I HAVE TO WALK TO THE BUCKET!"
