Cocky Indeed

  • A cocky Ministry of Highways employee stopped at a farm and talked with an old farmer. He told the farmer, "I need to inspect your farm for a possible new road."
  • The old farmer said, "OK, but don't go in that field."
  • The Highways employee said, "I have the authority of the Provincial Government to go where I want. See this card? I am allowed to go wherever I wish on farm land."
  • So the old farmer went about his farm chores.
  • Later, he heard loud screams and saw the Ministry of Highways employeee running for the fence and close behind was the farmer's prize bull. The bull was madder than a nest full of hornets and the bull was gaining on the employee at every step.
  • The old farmer called out, "Show him your card!!"
