Paddy the painter.

Post by grandduke » 14 Mar 2016, 12:08

*The foreman of an Irish road crew employed Paddy to paint the white lines
line down the middle of the road. He told Paddy that he should paint two
miles of road in a day’s work.After the first day, the foreman was pleased
to find that he'd painted four miles of road instead of the two required.On
the second day, Paddy completed painting just 2 miles of road. The foreman
was a bit disappointed, but didn’t complain as this was, after all, only
what he’d asked for.On day 3, the foreman was disappointed to find that
Paddy had painted only one mile of road, and so asked, "On yer first day,
ya did four moiles o road. On yer second ya did two moiles. But on yer
tird day ya only did one moil. What’s up??Paddy replied, "Well, oil tell ya
what’s up, but I tought a clever bloke loik you woulda been able ta figger
it out fer yerself! Yer see, every day I gets ferder an ferder away from
de paint can!?” :thinking:
“You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not?’”
