A guy stopped at a local gas station

A guy stopped at a local gas station and, after filling his tank, he paid the
bill and bought a soft drink. He stood by his car to drink his cola and watched
a couple of men working along the roadside.

One man would dig whole two or three feet deep and then move on. The other man
came along behind him and filled in the hole. While one was digging a new hole,
the other was 25 feet behind filling in the hole.

The men worked right past the guy with the soft drink and went on down the
road. I can't stand this, said the man tossing the can into a trash container
and heading down the road toward the men.

Hold it, hold it, he said to the men. Can you tell me what's going on here
with all this digging and refilling?

Well, we work for the government and we're just doing our job, one of the
men said. But one of you is digging a hole and the other fills it up. You're
not accomplishing anything. Aren't you wasting
the taxpayers' money?

You don't understand, mister, one of the men said, leaning on his shovel and
wiping his brow. Normally there are three of us: me, Elmer and Leroy. I dig the
hole, Elmer sticks in the tree, and Leroy here puts the dirt back. Elmer's job's
been cut... so now it's just me an' Leroy.
