“Farm Life has its Challenges”

“Farm Life has its Challenges”

 

 

 

The Department of Labor claimed a farmer was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to investigate him.

Department of Labor employee: I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.

Farmer:  Well, there's my farm hand who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board. Then there's the mentally challenged worker. 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 so he can cope with life. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally."

NCDL employee: That's the guy I want to talk to...the mentally challenged one.

Farmer:  That would be me.

I had an inkling that the story would end like that. He may be mentally inpaired but he sure knows what he wants.
