Don't mess with little old ladies
« on: January 23, 2012, 10:39:24 PM »
A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large
plastic garbage bags behind her. One of the bags was ripped and every
once in a while a $20 fell out onto the sidewalk.

Noticing this, a policeman stopped her, and said, "Ma'am, there are
$20 bills falling out of that bag."

"Oh, really? Darn it!" said the little old lady. "I'd better go back
and see if I can find them.. Thanks for telling me officer."

Well, now, not so fast," said the cop. Where did you get all that
money? You didn't steal it, did you?"

"Oh, no, no", said the old lady. "You see, my back yard is right
next to a golf course. A lot of golfers come and pee through a knot
hole in my fence, right into my flower garden. It used to really tick
me off. Kills the flowers, you know. Then I thought, 'why not make
the best of it ?

So, now, I stand behind the fence by the knot hole, real quiet, with
my hedge clippers. Every time some guy sticks his thing through my
fence, I surprise him, grab hold of it and say, 'O.K., buddy! Give
me $20, or off it comes.'

"Well, that seems only fair," said the cop, laughing. "OK. Good
luck! Oh, by the way, what's in the other bag?"

"Not everybody pays."
"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me . . . Anything can happen, child. Anything can be"

Very Funny! With my luck, I would probably have left my wallet at home. Larry

Surprise him is the understatement of the lifetime.  I would jump out of my shorts and scream like a little girl if I stuck my thing through a knothole and something grabbed it.
