I’m tired . . .

For a couple years I’ve been blaming it on lack of sleep and too much pressure from my job, but now I found out the real reason:

 I’m tired because I’m overworked.

 • The population of the USA is 237 million.

• 104 million are retired.

• That leaves 133 million to do the work.

• There are 85 million in school, which leaves 48 million to do the work.

 • Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government, leaving 19 million to do the work.

 • 2.8 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 16.2 million to do the work.

 • Take from the total the 14,800,000 people who work for State and City Governments and that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.

 • At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work.

• Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons.

• That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me.

And you’re sitting at your computer reading jokes.
