At the lumberyard

So these two carpenters hop in their pickup and drive down to the lumberyard. One waits in the truck while the other goes in. "I need 80 4-by-2's," the carpenter tells the counterman.

The guy at the counter looks at him and asks, "You mean you need 2-by-4's?"

"Wait, I'll check," the carpenter says and he goes out to the truck to check with his buddy. When he comes back in, he tells the counterman, "You're right; they're 2-by-4's. I want 80 2-by-4's".

"OK, then," the guys says. "So how long do you want them?"

"Just a minute," the carpenter says and he goes out to the truck again.

When he comes back he tells the counterman, "We're gonna need 'em for awhile... We're planning to build a garage with them."
