The blonde for a day!

Don't you just feel sorry for blondes at times . . .

Blonde For A Day

A road crew supervisor hired a nice-looking blonde woman to
assist with painting the yellow line down the middle of the
road. He was skeptical about hiring her, but she appeared
enthusiastic and told him that she really needed the job. He
explained to her that her work day would be to complete 2 miles
of line on her road, and he set her up with her brushes and
paint and got her started.

After the first day, he was pleased to find that she did an
excellent job and was able to paint 4 miles of road in her 8
hour shift. He told her that she did an excellent job and how
pleased he was with her progress.

On the second day, she completed painting 2 miles of road. Her
supervisor was surprised that on day one she had completed twice
as much work, but did not say anything, as 2 miles of road was
the amount that the job required anyway. He decided to just
accept it, and to look forward to the next day when he was sure
she would pick up her speed again.

On day 3 he was shocked to learn that in her 8 hour shift, she
only completed painting 1 mile of road. He called her into his
office and asked her what was the problem, "On your first day,
you completed 4 miles of road, on your second day, 2 miles of
road, and now on day 3, you were only able to complete 1 mile of
road." "Can I ask you, what is the problem?"

"Well, she replied, I keep getting farther and farther from the
paint can."
