The Haircut

The Haircut 

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 haircut.
 
And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the
 citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.
The moment a person forms a theory, his imagination sees in every object only the traits which favor that theory
