Collecting Unemployment

Ole and Sven worked together and both were laid off, so they headed over to the unemployment office.
When Ole was asked his occupation, he replied, "Panty stitcher. I sew elastic onto cotton panties."

The clerk looked up panty stitcher and found it classed as unskilled labor, so she gave Ole $250 a week unemployment pay.

She then asked Sven what his occupation was, and he replied, "Diesel fitter."

Looking up diesel fitter, the clerk found it classed as skilled labor, so she gave Sven $500 a week.

When Ole found out, he was furious. He stormed back in to find out why his friend and co-worker was collecting double the amount that he was.

"Panty stitchers are unskilled and diesel fitters are skilled labor," the clerk explained.

"What skill?" Ole yelled. "I sew the elastic on, Sven pulls on it and says, 'Ya, diesel fitter'!"

That is too funny. I had to read the deisel fitter to understand that it meant "These will fit her."
