Road Stripers

Diminishing road returns for the promising blonde painter


A blonde, a brunette and a redhead all tried out for the same job as road stripers. The boss told them they would all work for three days and whoever painted the most would get the job.

At the end of the first day the redhead had painted 3 miles the brunette had painted 2.5 miles and the blonde had painted 10 miles. The boss was so excited, he told her to keep it up and the job was hers.

The next day the redhead painted 5 miles, the brunette 5.6 miles, and the blonde painted 4 miles. He told her not to worry - you still have a good lead.

So, on the third day the redhead had painted 6 miles, the brunette 5 miles, and the blonde only one mile. The boss was so disappointed, he asked Lori, “What went wrong, you were doing so good.”

She said, “Well, that bucket of paint keeps getting further and further away.”
