I WANT TO TALK TO THE HALFWIT.

Post by Ironman » Sun Nov 20, 2016 3:24 pm

A man owns a small farm near Wagga. The Department of Labour claims he is not paying proper wages to his staff and sends a representative out to interview him.

"I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them," demands the rep.

"Well," replies the farmer, "there's my farm hand who's been with me for three years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board. The cook has been here for 18 months and I pay her $150 per week plus free room and board.

"Then there's the halfwit. He works about 18  hours every day, seven days a week and does about 90 per cent of all the actual work. He gets about $10 per week, pays his own room and board and if he's lucky gets a bottle of whiskey on Saturday night."

"That's the guy I want to talk to, the halfwit," says the agent.

"That," replies the farmer, "would be me."
