Labor Humor: Misery Loves Company
One day a truck driver was cruising down a rural road when a loud bang came from under the front of the hood. The truck stalled. After jumping out and looking under the hood, the driver found that a piston had broken.
An hour went by before a pickup truck full of young men happened on the scene. They pulled over and asked the driver what was wrong.
“Piston broke,” said the truck driver.
The young men all looked at each other and said, “Jump in! We’re all pissed and broke too!”
