The Hillbillies, Curtis and Leroy and Congress Fail
The Adventures of Curtis and Leroy
How Governments Work!
The government owned a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert.
Congress said, “Someone may steal from it.” So they created a night watchman position and hired three people to handle the job, D. Squat (a retired and famous pro football player) and Curtis and Leroy.
Then Congress said,”How do the watchmen do their jobs without instruction?” So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.
Then Congress said,”How will we know the night watchmen are doing the tasks correctly?” So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One to do the studies and one to write the reports.
Then Congress said,”How are these people going to get paid?” So they created the following positions, a time keeper, and a payroll officer, then hired two people.
Then Congress said,”Who will be accountable for all of these people?” So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.
Then Congress said, “We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $64,000 over budget.” Many suggested that they just print more money, like they do for most other things. But some said it’s time we became fiscally responsible.
So they laid off the three night watchmen.
A few Government Officials became very upset and announced that Congress could layoff Curtis and Leroy but should never have a laid off the other watchman especially if they knew who he was!
It just goes to show you that most people in Congress don’t care about Curtis and Leroy and don’t know Diddly Squat!
