The boss of an Irish building crew working on a construction site, ordered one of his men to dig a hole that was eight feet deep.
So the workman set about digging a hole that was eight feet deep, which took him quite some time and effort.
After the job was completed, the boss returned and explained to the workman that an error had been made and the hole wouldn’t be needed after all. “Fill ‘er up, Paddy” he ordered.
So reluctantly Paddy did as he’d been told, but he ran into a problem. Try as he might, he could not get all the dirt packed back into the hole without leaving a mound on top.
So he went to the office and explained his problem to the boss.
The boss snorted, “Honestly! The kind of help you get these days! There’s obviously only one thing to do Paddy. You’ll have to dig that hole deeper!”
