Building a Fence

fenceTwo carpenters were building a fence.

The older guys took a break to wipe his brow and stretch. He noticed the younger guy take a nail out of the box, look at it, and throw it over his shoulder.

He took the next nail out, looked at it, and threw it over his shoulder.

Took the next nail out, looked at it, and hammered it into the fence.

Took the next nail out, looked at it, and tossed it away.

The older guy walked over and said, “Why are you throwing these nails out?”

“Can’t you tell?” asked the kid. “The heads are on the wrong ends!”

“You idiot!” the older guy yelled. “Those are for the other side of the fence!”
