Sometimes you just have to sit back and enjoy the day. This morning I received a very interesting eMail from a friend in Singapore containing some deep insight that applies to every government around the world…

The  Four Cats

Felix The Cat

Four men were bragging about how smart their cats  were:

The first man was an Engineer,
The second man was an Accountant,
The third man was a Chemist, and
The fourth man was a Government  Employee.

To show off, the Engineer called his cat,  “T-square, do your stuff.”

T-square pranced over to the desk, took out some paper  and pen and promptly drew a circle, a square,  and a triangle.

Everyone agreed that was pretty smart!

But the Accountant said his cat could do better. He  called his cat and said, “Spreadsheet,  do your stuff.”

Spreadsheet went out to the kitchen and returned with a  dozen cookies. He divided them into 4 equal  piles of 3 cookies.

Everyone agreed that  was good!

But the Chemist said his cat could do better. He  called his cat and said, “Measure, do your  stuff.”

Measure got up, walked to the fridge, took out a quart  of milk, got a 10 ounce glass from the cupboard  and poured

Exactly  8 ounces without spilling a drop into the  glass.

Everyone agreed that was pretty good!

Then the three men turned to the Government Employee  and said, “What can your cat  do?”

The Government Employee called his cat and said,  “CoffeeBreak, do your stuff.”

CoffeeBreak  jumped to his feet…….

Ate the cookies……..

Drank  the milk…..

Sh*t  on the paper…….

Screwed  the other three cats……..

Claimed he injured his back while doing  so.

Filed a grievance report for unsafe working  conditions…….

Put in for Workers  Compensation………………and

Went home for the rest of the day on sick  leave…………
