Prison and Work

Fishing Yesterday
We had a long day on the lake yesterday. We got on the water at Douglas at 9 AM and and we put the boat back on the trailer at around 8:30 PM. That's almost 12 hours. It was a hard day of fishing. The wind was terrible and there was a lot of leaves and vegetation in the water. We spent a lot of effort trying to control the boat, and a lot of time cranking in and cleaning the vegetation off the lures.

Did we catch fish? A few, and certainly nothing to brag about considering the time on the water. We caught 15 crappie (12 keepers), 3 striped bass, 2 drum, and one small sauger pike. We brought home the 12 nice crappie (see picture).


A Comparison of Prison to Work

I saw this a while back, and thought I would share with you today. It's kind of funny, but I can honestly say that I enjoyed my years of working for Eastman Chemical Company.

In prison you spend the majority of your time in an
8' x 10' cell.
At work you spend most of your time in a 6' x 8' cubicle.

In prison you get three meals a day.
At work you only get a break for one meal and you have to pay for it.

In prison you get time off for good behavior.
At work you get rewarded for good behavior with more work.

In prison a guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you.
At work you must carry around a security card and unlock and open all the doors yourself.

In prison you can watch TV and play games.
At work you get fired for watching TV and playing games.

In prison they allow your family and friends to visit.
At work you cannot even speak to your family and friends.

In prison all expenses are paid by taxpayers with no work required.
At work you get to pay all the expenses to go to work and then they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners.

In prison you spend most of your life looking through the bars from the inside wanting to get out.
At work you spend your time wanting to get out and inside bars.

In prison you can join many programs which you can leave at any time.
At work there are some programs you can never get out of.

In prison there are wardens who are often sadistic.
At work we have managers.

Jokes of the Day
As the lawyer woke up after surgery, he said" "Why are all the blinds drawn?"

The doctor answered: "There's a big fire across the street, and we didn't want you to think the operation was a failure."
A woman woke her husband in the middle of the night and told him "There is a burglar downstairs in the kitchen and he is eating the cake that my mother made for us."

The husband said, "Who shall I call, the police or an ambulance?"
