Humor to Start the Day!!

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After 
the  cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I 
cannot accept money from  you, I'm doing community 
service this week.' The florist was pleased and left the shop. When 
the barber went to open his shop the next  morning, there 
was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at 
his door. 
  Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to 
pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept 
money from you , I'm doing community service this week.' 
The cop was happy and left the shop. The next morning when 
the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you' card 
and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door. 
Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he 
went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I can not 
accept money from you. I'm  doing community service this 
week.' The Congressman was very happy and left the shop. 
The next morning, when the barber went to open up,  there 
were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free 
And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental 
difference between the citizens of our country and the 
politicians who run it.

They are the same everywhere.

Have a great day.

Hilarious, but often times... sigh... too true.

This is also pretty good humor to end the day, but I have to admit that there is too much truth in it!

The best humor comes from truth--and it is "right on" in this case. Mickie :)

Funny, but too true. Politicians are the same in my country too.

Methinks you are not so enamored by the folks who purport to run your fair city/state/country ;-P

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
