Sometimes a little encouragement helps them learn.
I guess we all need a few laughs in this time of financial turmoil.
I was at my bank today; there was a short line. Just one lady in front of me, an Asian lady who was trying to exchange Yen for Pounds. It was obvious she was a little irritated…
She asked the cashier, “Why it change? Yesterday, I get two hunat Pounds fo Yen. Today I only get hunat eighty? Why it change?”
The cashier shrugged his shoulders and said, “Fluctuations.”
The Asian lady snapped back, “Fluc you white people too!”
In a small Texas town, the police arrested the local madam and seized her little black book, which listed all her working girls. Each officer on the small police force was assigned a group of names and ordered to check them out.
After a week, the chief held a meeting.
When he called on Detective Summers, Summers replied, “Chief, I’m sorry but I’m gonna have to disqualify myself. One of the ladies I questioned is an eighty-four-year-old so charming that I’ve fallen in love with her.”
“Damnation, boy!” exclaimed the chief. “I’m surprised at you, Summers. You’ve been a policeman almost all your life — and here you go, falling for the oldest trick in the book!”
Little Jimmy attended a horse auction with his father. He watched as his father moved from horse to horse, running his hands up and down the horses’ legs, rumps, and chests.
After a few minutes, Jimmy asked, “Dad, why are you doing that?”
“Because I’m thinking of buying these horses,” said his father.
Jimmy suddenly got a worried look on his face and said, “Then I think we’d better hurry home right away!”
“Why?” his father asked.
“Because the postman stopped by yesterday, and I think he wants to buy Mum!”
