Sven and Ole had worked for years together at the foundation garment factory. Due to downsizing, they both lost their jobs.
Bright and early the next day, they were at the Unemployment office. Sven had the first appointment, and when the lady asked what he had done, he told her; "I vas a panty stitcher; I sew the elastic in the ladies pants."
The clerk said: " In that case, I can give you three hundred dollars."
Sven left , and it was Ole's turn.
Ole came out grinning, and said "I got $600!" Sven said " VAT?", and went storming back in to talk to the lady.
She said "You were a panty stitcher, which is unskilled labor, and Ole was a diesel fitter, which is a skilled job. "
"Lemme chust tell you vat", said Ole. For t'irty year he sit next to me, and ven I finish stitching, he put the pants over his head, and say "YA, diese'll fitter!"
