Call Me Leroy

Uncle Leroy got a job down at the broom factory.

On his first day the straw boss (floor supervisor) calls ol' Leroy into his little office and says, "You the new man huh? What is yer name?"

Leroy replied, "Leroy"

The straw boss says "I don't call anyone by first names. It breeds familiarity and that leads to breakdown in my authority. I refer to all employees by last names; now what is your last name!"

Leroy smiles and says, "Its Darling - Leroy Darling!

The straw boss said, "Now Leroy the next thing . . . . "

Chivalry

The escalator was broken, and the only way out of the airport was up a flight of stairs. I had a big suitcase and a sore knee.

I began dragging my bag and was making a loud thud on every step when a man behind me grabbed it and carried it to the top.

"That was so chivalrous," I gushed, thanking him.

"Chivalry had nothing to do with it," he said. "I've got a splitting headache."

Shepherds

The Sunday School teacher looked at the boy's drawing of a manger scene, which included a large dog was among the animals. The teacher asked about it.

"Oh," said the child, "That's a German Shepherd."
