The Joys of Entrepreneurship
« on: November 15, 2006, 08:51:09 PM »
A man owned a small ranch in Texas.
The Texas Wage & Hour Dept. sent a man out and claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to interview him.

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

"Well," replied the rancher, "there's my ranch hand who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $600 a week plus free room and board.

The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $500 per week plus free room and board.

Then there's the half-wit who works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night."

"That's the guy I want to talk to, the half-wit," says the agent.

"That would be me," replied the rancher

Only if you are a Texican can you have a small ranch. If you are from anywhere else, those small ranches seem large.
