I was thinking about our "Politicians" and wondering how it would work out if we hired our workers the same way we hired our politicians. Here's a couple of ideas about how it might work : -

Wanted Shop Assistant. Must not like people. Must give the product to the rich for free and charge the poor and middle class double - thus forcing the lower paid people to pay for the rich. Must be able to take "gifts" and bribes and kickbacks. Must work short hours and take long breaks. No experience necessary.

Wanted Car Mechanic. Must hate Cars and Car manufacturers. Must be mechanically inept. Prefer no experience.

Wanted Accountant. Must be unable to handle the job. Must not be able to balance the books. Must not be able to do simple addition. Prefer person with no business experience at all.

Wanted CEO. Must be able to steal from your customers, ruin your company and then be able to take a multi-million dollar bonus for "Good Performance" without laughing. Must have a hard heart and be able to lay off workers and hire workers in another country. Must be happy to pay no taxes - for you or your company.

That is how we would be running our businesses if we hired our employees the same careful way we hire our Politicians.

A riddle for you.

What am I?

Pronounced as one letter,
And written with three,
Two letters there are,
And two only in me,
I'm double, I'm single,
I'm black, blue and gray,
I'm read from both ends,
And the same either way,
What am I?

And another one, easy this time.

From the beginning of eternity,
To the end of time and space,
To the beginning of every end,
And the end of every place,
What am I?

Good luck, let me know when you get them.
