A guy stopped at a rural gas station. He filled his tank and also had a coffee there, so he had the time to look around. He saw two men working along the roadside. The first would dig a hole and then move on. The second came along behind and filled in the hole.
'Hello, can I ask something?' he asked the roadside workers. 'I must ask, what are you doing?'
'Well, we work for the government,' the first man said.
'But one of you is digging a hole and the other is filling it up. This is insane, aren't you wasting the government's money?'
'You don't understand, mister,' the second replied. 'Normally there's three of us. Bill digs the hole, John sticks in a tree and I put the dirt back. You know, we cannot stop doing our job, just because of John's sickness.'
