digging a hole
There were two men working for the city council; one would dig a hole, the other would follow behind him and fill it in.
They worked furiously all day without rest, one man digging a hole, the other man filling it in again.
An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but couldn’t understand what they were doing. So he asked the hole digger; “I appreciate the effort you’re putting into your work, but what’s the story? You dig a hole and your partner follows behind and fills it up again.” The hole digger wiped his brow and sighed; “Well, normally we’re a three-man team, but the guy who plants the trees is sick today.”
