The state Department of Labor claimed a small retailer was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to investigate him.
Agent: "I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them."
Retailer: "Well, there's my assistant who's been with me for three years. I pay her $200 a week plus discounts on our merchandise.
"Then there's the mentally challenged worker. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally."
Agent: "That's the guy I want to talk to, the mentally challenged one."
Retailer: "That would be me."
