spending 3-1/2 hours enduring the long lines, surly clerks, and
insane regulations at the department of motor vehicles, I stopped
at a toy store to pick up a gift for my son. I brought my selection
- a baseball bat - to the cash register.
"Cash or charge?" the clerk asked. "Cash," I
snapped. Then, apologizing for my rudeness, I explained, "I've
spent the afternoon at the motor-vehicle bureau."
"Shall I gift wrap the bat?" the clerk asked sweetly.
"Or are you going back there?"
A young man saw an elderly couple sitting down to lunch at Burger
He noticed that they ordered one meal, and an extra drink cup. As
he watched, the gentleman carefully divided the hamburger in half,
then counted out the fries. One for him, one for her, until each
had half of them.
he poured half of the soft drink into the extra cup, and set it
in front of his wife. The old man began to eat, and his wife sat
watching, with her hands folded in her lap.
The young man decided to ask if they would allow him to purchase
another meal for them so that they didn't have to split theirs.
The old gentleman said, "Oh, no. We've been married 50 years,
and everything has always been and will always be shared, 50/50."
The young man
than asked the wife if she was going to eat, and she replied, "Not
yet. It's his turn using the teeth."

A priest was called away for an emergency. Not wanting to leave
the confessional unattended, he called his rabbi friend from across
the street and asked him to cover for him. The rabbi told him he
wouldn't know what to say, but the priest told him to come on over

The priest asks, "What did you do?" The woman says, "I

"Three times." Priest: "Say two Hail Mary's, put
$5 in the box and go and sin no more." A few minutes later
a man enters the confessional. He says, "Father forgive me
for I have sinned." Priest: "What did you do?" Man:
