>                     The Sears repairman told us that  one of our
problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the  opener.
I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one Sears made at tha t time, a 1/2 horsepower. He shook his head and said, 'Lady, you need a  1/4 horsepower.' I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4. He said, 'NO, it's  not.'

>                      My  daughter and I went through the McDonald's
take-out window and I Ga ve the clerk a $5 bill. Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her a quarter. She said, 'you  gave me too much money.' I said, 'Yes I  know,  but this way you can just give me a dollar bill back.'  She sighed and went  to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request. I did so, and he handed me back the quarter, and said 'We're sorry but they could not do that kind of  thing.' The clerk then
proceeded to give me back $1 and 75 cents in  change..

neighbor call the local  township administrative office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road. The reason: 'Too many deer are being hit by cars out here!  I don't  think this is a good place for  them to be crossing anymore.'

Rent the movie 'Idiocracy' it's a comedy, but I consider it a horror because the 500 year projection seems about 480 years longer than the indications are giving.
be happy and make others happy.
