lighthearted post comming .
this is symbolic of the hard work most people do .. they are somewhere in the middle of thing putting a lot of effort in ..but not knowing or caring if there is any point.. if this guy was getting paid and the productive stuff ran out ..what happens.. instead of sending the guy home ..or letting the guy sit on his but .. until it is his time to go.. a proper minded boss or floor manager .. basically comes up with tasks that effectively amount to shoveling water from one part of the stream to another .
hundred of years ago in Europe where most where land renting peasants ..if you suddenly started producing more and then had a lot of free time .. the land lord ..or lord of the land would raise your rent ..so there was no real reason for most people to innovate or be more productive . and if you did.. you turned around and created your own busy looking work .
it basically worked this way everywhere ..and there is a huge amount of that in the mindset of most people today .
