Sven and Ollie

Sven and Ole worked together and both were laid off, so they went
to the unemployment office.

When asked his occupation, Ole answered, "Dress Maker". "I make
the dresses for the nice ladies."

The clerk looked up Dress Maker. Finding it classified as unskilled
labor, she gave him $300 a week unemployment pay.

Sven was asked his occupation.

"Diesel fitter" he replied.

Since diesel fitter was a skilled job, the clerk gave Sven $600 a week.

When Ole found out he was furious.

He stormed back into the office to find out why his friend and co-worker
was collecting double his pay.

The Clerk explained: "Dress Makers are unskilled and diesel fitters
are skilled labor."

"What skill?" yelled Ole. "I make the dresses for the nice ladies, Sven
holds them up, looks at 'em up and says: "Yah, diesel fitter."
