Boudreaux and Thibodeaux worked together and both were laid off, so
they went to the unemployment office. When asked his occupation,
Boudreaux answered, "Panty Stitcher. I sew da elastic onto ladies'
cotton panties."
The clerk looked up Panty Stitcher. Finding it classified as
unskilled labor, she gave him $300 a week unemployment pay.
Thibodeaux was asked his occupation. "Diesel Fitter," he replied.
Since diesel fitter was a skilled job, the clerk gave Thibodeaux
$600 a week.
When Boudreaux found out he was furious. He stormed back into the
office to find out why his friend and coworker was collecting double his pay.
The clerk explained, "Panty stitchers are unskilled and diesel
fitters are skilled labor." "What skill?" yelled Boudreaux. "I sew
the elastic on da panties, Thibodeaux puts dem over his head and
says: "Yeah, diesel fitter."
