a: Career ~
b: Collecting Chickens

What: "I recently heard a great story from a friend. Seems he once had a summer job working on a farm, where some people had the job of moving live chickens from one place to another. They had to collect 4 live chickens, 2 under each arm, and take them from one place to another. My friend said that quite often he'd watch someone who got ahold of 4 chickens, started to move them, and then lost control of one chicken and it got away. In almost every case, they would start chasing after the one they dropped, and in the process they almost always lost control of the other three. They ended up with no chickens at all, starting all over again."
