For a couple of months, I’’ve been blaming it on lack of sleep and too much partying. But I’m tired because I’m overworked. The population in this country is 28.3 million. Five million are retired, 3 million are self-employed, while 5 million more are children below 6 years old. That leaves 15.3 million to do the work.
There are 13 million in schools and universities, which leaves 2.3 million to do the work. Of this, there are 421,800 unemployed, leaving 1,878,200 to do the work.
Take from that 1, 200,000 people who work for government departments and that leaves 678,200 people to do the work. 101,679 are in the armed forces, which leaves 576,521 to do the work. At any time, there are 538,305 people in hospitals, leaving 38,216 people to do the work.
At the moment, there are 38,214 people in prisons. That leaves just two people to do the work: You and Me. And you are sitting at your computer reading jokes!
