Soon after O'Shaughnessy clocked in for work, the foreman called him over and told him that he had a phone call in the front office.

When O'Shaughnessy returned, he had a mournful expression on his face and his head hung low. His foreman noticed and asked if it was bad news. "To be shure it was, Boss," he replied, "I just found out from Ireland that my mother died earlier this morning."

"Gosh, that's awful", replied the foreman, "Do you want the rest of the day off?"

"No", replied O'Shaughnessy. "I'll finish the day out."

About an hour later, the foreman returned to inform him that there was another phone call for him in the office. This time when O'Shaughnessy returned he looked twice as glum, and the foreman asked if everything was alright.

"Bejeezuz Boss, its even worse news. That was my brother, and his mother died today too!"
