Darryl was hired to paint the yellow stripes on a highway. The first day, he painted ten miles of road. The second day, he only painted
five. His boss, seeing how he was getting slower, decided to give him a day off, thinking that he needed a rest.
When he came back the next day, he only painted 1/2 mile of road.
His now discouraged boss asked, "Excuse me, but why have you been painting less and less each day, even after I gave you a day off?"
"Simple," Darryl answered. "I keep getting farther away from the paint can!"
