A young engineer was leaving the Ottawa office at 4.45 p.m. when he saw the Federal Member of Parliament from the engineer`s riding, standing in his Office, in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand.
"Listen," said this Member of Parliament, "this is a very sensitive and important document, and my secretary is not here. Can you make this thing work?"
"Certainly," said the Ottawa young engineer. He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.
"Excellent, excellent!" said the Member of Parliament as his paper disappeared inside the machine, "I just need one copy."
Lesson: Never, Never, ever assume that your Member of Parliament knows what he's doing.
