The manager of a large corporation got a heart attack, and his doctor suggested he go for several weeks to a farm to relax.

So the guy went to a farm, but after a couple of days he was very bored. So he asked the farmer to give him some job to do.

The farmer told him to clean up all of the cow manure.

Now the farmer, thinking that to somebody coming from the city, working the whole life sitting in an office, would take at least a week to finish the job. To his surprise, the manager finished the job in less than a day!

So, the next day, the farmer gave the manager a more difficult job. He sent him to cut the heads off 500 chickens.

The farmer was sure that the manager would not be able to do the this job so quickly. But, at the end of the day, the job was done!

The next morning, having nothing else, the farmer asked the manager to divide a bag of potatoes in two boxes, small potatoes in one, big potatoes in the other. At the end of the day the farmer was surprised to see the manager was sitting in front of the potato bags, with both
two boxes still empty!

The farmer asked the him, "How is it you completed the more difficult jobs the first two days, but can't do a simple job like this?"

"Listen," replied the manager, "all my life I'm cutting heads and dealing with crap, but this requires I make decisions!"
