    Oregon Farmer

    A man owned a small farm in Northeastern Oregon . The Internal Revenue determined
    he was not paying proper wages to his staff and sent an investigator out to interview him.

    “I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them!” demanded the investigator.

    “Well,” replied the farmer, “there’s my farm hand who’s been with me for three 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 halfwit. He works about 18 hours every day and does
    about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 a week. He
    pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of whiskey every
    Saturday night. He also sleeps with my wife, occasionally.”

    “That’s the guy I want to talk to...the halfwit!” said the agent.

    “That would be me,” replied the farmer...

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    If you have ever owned a business you know how much truth there is in a story like that.
