Boo & Thib at the Unemployment Office
Boudreaux and Thibodeaux worked together and both were
laid off, so they went to the unemployment office. When asked his
occupation, Boudreaux answered, "Panty Stitcher. I sew da elastic
onto ladies' cotton panties."
The clerk looked up Panty Stitcher. Finding it
classified as unskilled labor, she gave him $300 a week unemployment pay.
Thibodeaux was asked his occupation. "Diesel Fitter,"
Since diesel fitter was a skilled job, the clerk gave
Thibodeaux $600 a week. When Boudreaux found out he was furious. He
stormed back into the office to find out why his friend and
co-worker was collecting double his pay.
The clerk explained, "Panty stitchers are unskilled
and diesel fitters are skilled labor."
"What skill?" yelled Boudreaux. "I sew the elastic on
da panties, Thibodeaux puts dem over his head and says:
"Yah, diesel fitter."
