A man was given the job of painting the white lines down the middle of a highway. On his first day, he painted 6 miles; the next day 3 miles; the following day less than a mile.
When the foreman asked the man why he kept painting less each day, he replied, "I just can't do any better. Each day I keep getting farther away from the paint can."
