I'm Tired

Yes, I'm tired.  For several years I've been blaming it on middle age, iron poor blood, lack of vitamins, stress, air pollution, water pollution, saccharin, excess weight, dieting, poor genetics, and a dozen other maladies that make you wonder if life is really worth living.

But now I find out, it is none of that.  
I'm tired because I'm overworked.

You see, the population of this country is 307 million, but 124 million are retired.  That leaves 183 million to do the work.  Subtract the 85 million in school and that leaves 98 million to do the work.  Of this total, there are 29 million employed by the federal government.

That leaves 69 million to do the work.

Four million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 64 million to do the work.  Take from that total the 24,800,000 people who work for state and city Governments and that leaves 39,200,000 of us to do the work.

At any given time there are 24,000,000 in hospitals, so that leaves 15,200,000  
to do the work.  As of today, there were 15,199,998 people in federal and State prisons.  That leaves just two people to do the work, you and me.

And you're sitting there reading this.

Yes, but look at all the time you wasted doing your research, while I was working my butt off making up for your wasted time.

Well, my advice is: Chin up!
(As pointed out by Martin Gardner, this is the same advice given to those worried that their throats are about to be cut....)
