Getting Farther Every Day

A man was given the job of painting the white lines down the middle of a highway. On his first day he painted six miles; the next day three miles; the following day less than a mile.

When the foreman asked the man why he kept painting less each day, he replied

"I just can't do any better. Each day I keep getting farther away from the paint can."
