Hello and Goodbye
Today I picked up my mother-in-law at the airport.
She’s getting a little up there. She’s at the age where she doesn’t remember things too well.
So, when I saw her, I said, “Thanks for coming. Have a nice flight!”
Cook It, Please
A cattle rancher went into town on a Saturday night for a sit down steak dinner. When the waiter brought him his steak, it was rare, very rare.
The cow-puncher looked at it and demanded that it be returned to the kitchen and cooked.
“It is cooked,” snapped the waiter.
“Cooked nothing,” replied the cow-puncher. “I’ve seen cows injured worse than this and recover!”
“Build It and They Will Come”
The telephone solicitor selling basement waterproofing must have thought she’d died and gone to heaven when she reached my very polite and patient son on the phone. At the end of her long sales pitch, she asked, “Do you mind if we send out someone to give you an estimate?”
“Not at all,” my son said.
“When would be a good time?” she asked.
My son answered, “Just as soon as I dig a basement.”
