A man owned a small real estate appraisal business in upstate New York.

The Department of Labor heard that he was not paying proper wages to his employees and sent an agent down to interview him.

"I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them," demanded the agent.
"Well," replied the appraiser, "there's my Dad who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $800 a week plus free coffee and donuts. The Receptionist has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $600 per week.

Then there's the half-wit who works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $100 per week, pays his own transport, and I buy him a bottle of red every Saturday night. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally."
"That's the guy I want to talk to --- the half-wit," says the agent.

"That would be me," replied the appraiser.
