A recruit from Birmingham, a highly prized 5-star long snapper, was driving down to Auburn for his final visit. He had made the decision that the loveliest village on the plains would be his school. As he merged onto Hwy 15, he saw a sign that read, “Auburn University – Left.”
Disappointed, he turned around and went back home.
Alabama Power hired 3 Auburn players and 3 Alabama players to put up pole for the summer. The supervisor for both crews took them out and assigned the Auburn crew to put pole down one street and the Bama player down another.
At the end of the day both crews come back in to the shop and the supervisor asked the Bama crew, “how many poles did you guys plant today?” One of the players responded, “15.” The supervisor replied, “pretty good first day. Try to improve tomorrow.”
The supervisor then asked the Auburn crew, “how many poles did you guys plant today?” One of the players responded, “3.” The supervisor replied,”In eight hours you only planted 3 poles. I know this was your first day on the job but the Bama guys planted 15. What gives?” One of the Auburn players protested, “But boss, you should see how shallow they buried theirs!”
A man sitting on a bench in downtown Auburn noticed as two Auburn students in a “City of Auburn – Public Works” truck drove up and parked.
The students walked over by a long sidewalk where one proceeded to dig a hole with a shovel. As soon as he finished digging the other student took his shovel and proceeded to fill the hole back up with the dirt that had been dug out.
The man continued to watch. This went on until about fifty carefully spaced holes were dug and filled back in.
The man finally could stand it no longer. He walked over and said, “Guys, I admire your work ethic, you’ve been busting your tails big time. But why is one of you digging a hole and the other one filling it back up”?
The first student looked at the man and answered, “Well normally we’re a three man crew…but the student who plants the trees took the day off”.
