For years I've been blaming it on iron-poor blood, lack of vitamins, dieting and a dozen other maladies. But now I found out the real reason I'm tired is because I'm overworked. The population of this country is 35 million. Four million are retired. That leaves 31 million to do the work.
There are 19 million in school, which leaves 12 million to do the work.
Of this, there are 7 million employed by the Federal government. This leaves 5 million to do the work.
275,000 are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 4,725,000 to do the work.
Take from the total the 1,225,000 people who work for provincial and local governments across the country and that leaves 3,500,000 to do the work.
Of this, there are 1,500,000 unemployed, 250,000 on disability insurance, and 125,000 on Workers' Compensation across the country which leaves 1,625,000 to do the work.
There are 188,000 in hospitals, so that leaves 1,437,000 to do the work.
Take away the 625,012 refugees and illegal aliens who are ineligible to work and that leaves 812,000 to do the work.
Now, there are 811,998 people in prisons and local jails. That leaves just two people to do the work.
You and me.
And you're sitting there playing around on E-mail.
