It’s “Funny Friday!”   I hope this one will add another smile or laugh to the beginning of your weekend.

FUNNY FRIDAY:  Work vs Prison

IN PRISON. . .you spend the majority of your time in an 8 x 10 cell.
AT WORK. . .you spend the majority of your time in a 6 x  8 cubicle.

IN PRISON. . .you get three free meals a day.
AT WORK. . .you only get a break for one meal, and you have to pay for it.

IN PRISON. . .you get time off for good behavior.
AT WORK. . .you get more work for good behavior.

IN PRISON. . .the guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you.
AT WORK. . .you must carry around a security card and open all the doors for yourself.

IN PRISON. . .you can watch TV and play games.
AT WORK. . . you can get fired for watching TV and playing games.

IN PRISON. . .you get your own toilet.
AT WORK. . .you have to share toilets with idiots who pee on the seat.

IN PRISON. . .they allow your family and friends to visit.
AT WORK. . .you can’t even speak to your family and friends.

IN PRISON. . .all expenses are paid by the taxpayers, with no work required.
AT WORK. . .you get to pay all the expenses to go to work and then they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners.

IN PRISON. . .you spend most of your life inside bars, wanting to get out.
AT WORK. . .you spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars.

IN PRISON. . .you must deal with sadistic wardens.
AT WORK. . .they are called “managers.”

So, why is it, again, that we work?
