Mike

A man owned a small ranch near San Antonio .

The Texas Dept of Labor claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to interview him.

"I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them," demanded the agent.

"Well," replied the farmer, "there's my farm hand who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board.

"The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $150 per week plus free room and board.

"Then there's the half-wit. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally."

"That's the guy I want to talk to .. the half-wit," says the agent.

"That would be me," replied the Rancher.

so true, it's actually kinda sad!! We would NEVER expect someone to work for US for what we pay ourselves!

funny cause it's true!

a couple years ago i sold my house to pay off the bakery.....with it all the appliances...

i just got a dishwasher at my new place a couple months ago...still don't have a washer or dryer.

there is a laundramat next door to the bakery.

you give up a lot to own a biz.

Oh, man. Thanks for that, Mike!!! It is so the truth! Probably why I have ventured into those dark waters yet. It is hard enough just doing it from the house!

What, what?! I thought once you opened a bakery you got to charge $1000 a serving for cake and it only takes 30 minutes to decorate it and you get to travel and ski and live a totally glamourus life!

My reply wasn't completely off-the-wall. This afternoon one of my co-workers asked me why I don't open my own bakery because I "could be making so much more money" than I am now. Even though no one at my work wants to buy cakes from me anymore because they think I charge too much.

...yeah, I don't get it either.
