Vermin

A safety officer went to his factory on Monday morning and discovered a number of dead rats around the factory. He called the police. Since there did not appear to be any foul play, the police referred the safety officer to the public health department. They said since there was no health threat that he should call the environmental health department. The manager said he could not pick up the rats because it was a job for the waste collection department and he would need authorisation from their director.

Now, the safety officer knew the waste department director, and was not to eager to call him. The director had a bad temper and was generally hard to deal with, but the safety officer called him anyway. The director did not disappoint. He immediately began to rant and rave at the safety officer and finally said, "Why did you call me anyway? Isn't it your job to organise waste collection and get rid of dead animals?

The safety officer paused for a brief prayer and asked for divine guidance to direct his response. He was led to say, "Yes, it is my job to organise the waste disposal and get rid of dead vermin, but I always like to notify the next of kin first"
