The manager1 of a large corporation2 got3 a heart4 attack5, and the doctor told him to go for several6 weeks to a farm to relax7. The guy8 went to a farm, and after a couple9 of days he was10 very bored12, so he asked the farmer to give him some job to do.
 
The farmer told him to clean up all of the cow manure13. The farmer thought14 that to somebody15 coming from the city, working the whole16 life17 sitting in an office, it will take over a week to finish the job, but for his surprise the manager finished18 the job in less19 than one day.
 
The next day the farmer gave20 to the manager a more difficult job: to cut the heads of 500 chickens. The farmer was sure that the manager will not be able21 to do the job, but at the end of the day the job was done.
 
The next morning, as11 most of the jobs in the farm were done, the farmer asked the manager to divide22 a bag of potatoes in two boxes: one box with small potatoes, and one box with big potatoes. At the end of the day the farmer saw23 that the manager was sitting in front of the potatoes bag, but the two boxes were empty.
 
The farmer asked the manager: "How is that you made24 such25 difficult jobs during26 the first days, and now you cannot do this simple27 job?"
 
The manager answered: "Listen, all my life I'm cutting heads and dealing28 with crap, but now you ask me to make decisions29!"
