“The Privilege of being a Business Owner”

 

The IRS suspected a fishing boat owner wasn't paying proper wages to his deckhand and sent an agent to investigate him.

IRS Auditor: I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.

Boat Owner: Well, there's Clarence, my deckhand, he's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $1,000 a week plus free room and board. Then there's the “mentally challenged” guy. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of Bacardi rum and a dozen Budweiser's every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also gets to sleep with my wife occasionally.

IRS Auditor: That's the guy I want to talk to - the “mentally challenged” one.

Boat Owner: That would be me. What would you like to know?

Good morning Joe. Why did I see what was coming and read on anyway? It is the fate of the small business owner today and for some, the years of toil are just getting worse. Enjoy your day.
