Gov’mint work

Two  city landscapers were working diligently alongside the
streets of a huge office complex. One would dig a hole and
the other would follow behind him and fill the hole in.

They worked up one side of a street, then down the other,
then moved on to the next street, working furiously all day
without rest, one guy digging a hole, the other guy filling
it in again.

An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but couldn’t
understand what they were doing. So he asked the hole
digger, “I’m impressed by the effort you two are putting
into your work, but I don’t get it — why do you dig a hole,
only to have your partner follow behind and fill it up
again?”

The hole digger wiped his brow and sighed, “Well, I suppose
it probably looks odd because we’re normally a three-man
team. But today the guy who plants the trees called in
sick.”
