The federal government was after this rancher for allegedly not paying and treating the people under his command fairly, but when they took a closer look into the way he ran things, they saw the truth.
Sometimes people work so hard during their lives in order to achieve their dreams of owning their own business, only to end up being owned by their businesses instead. This man had a hilarious way to put it.
We are sure that you and your friends are going to find it very amusing and relatable, and it surely will make it easier for you to go through a busy day.
A man owned a small ranch near Sheridan, Wyoming. The Wyoming Labor Department got a tip that he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an investigator out to interview him.
“I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them,” demanded the investigator.
“Well,” replied the rancher, “there’s my ranch hand who’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $1200 a week plus free room and board.
The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $1000 per week plus free room and board.
Then there’s the half-wit. He works about 18 hours every day, with no days off, and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week and pays his own room and board.
But, I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night, and he also sleeps with my wife occasionally.”
“That’s the guy I want to talk to… the half-wit,” says the investigator.
“You’re talking to him,” replied the rancher.
This man had a funny way to put the authorities in their place. After all, he was indeed taking care of his employees. But what about this old lady who was caught speeding and got away with it in the smartest way? You better take a look at it.
Some people have the wrong idea about the elderly, fooled by their appearance and diminishing abilities, taken then for helpless and innocent being when in reality they know every trick from the book.
