Two elderly Friends Buddy & Mick worked together and were both laid off,
So they went to the unemployment office.
When asked his occupation, Buddy answered,
“Panty Stitcher. I sew da elastic onto ladies cotton panties and thongs.”
The clerk looked up panty stitcher on his computer and finding it classified as unskilled labour, he gave him $80.00 a week unemployment pay.
Mick was next in, and when asked his occupation, replied, “Diesel Fitter.”
Since a diesel fitter was a skilled job, the clerk gave Mick $160.00 a week.
When Buddy found out, he was furious.
He stormed back into the Unemployment Office to find out why his friend and co-worker was collecting double his unemployment pay.
The clerk explained,
“Panty Stitchers are unskilled labourers, and Diesel Fitters are skilled labourers.”
“What skill?” yelled Buddy.
“I sew da elastic on da panties and thongs;
Mick puts ’em over his head and says:
“Yep, diesel fitter.”
