ODE TO WORK

I AM TIRED BECAUSE I AM OVERWORKED
The population of Britain is 51 million. 21 million are retired.
That leaves 30 million to do the work.
There are 19 million in school.
That leaves 11 million to do the work.
Of this total, 2 million are unemployed and 4 million are employed by the government.
That leaves 5 million to do the work.
1 million are in the armed forces
which leaves 4 million to do the work!
From that total 3 million are employed by the County and Borough Councils
leaving 1 million to do the work!
There are 620,000 people in hospitals and 379,998 in prison.
That leaves 2 people to do the work!
You and me.
And you are sitting doing nothing reading this ...
NO WONDER I AM TIRED!!!
