A 17-year-old girl came home with five job applications. She carefully filled them out, and later asked her mother to look them over.
All the answers were clear and concise and she noticed that on all five applications, under "Previous Employment" she had listed 'Babysitting'.
But then she read under "Reason for Leaving" and her daughter had answered, 'Parents came home'.
The foreman on a contracted job started bawling out one of the men, "I've had slow men on jobs before but you are the slowest I've ever seen. Is there anything you are quick with?"
"Well," yawned the workman, "nobody can get tired as quick as I can."
Two new work crews were putting in telephone poles. At the end of the day the foreman asked the first crew how many poles they had done.
"Twelve," was the reply. Then he asked the second crew and they said, "two."
"Two?" shouted the foreman. "The others did twelve!"
"Yeah," answered the leader of the second crew, "but you should see how much they left sticking out of the ground."
