Email of the Week — The Haircut

politicianBlessed are those that can give without remembering,  and take without forgetting.

One day a florist went to the barber for a haircut. When the barber finished he said to the florist,  “I can’t take your money:  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 policeman came in for a haircut.  When he tried to pay his bill, the barber again explained, “I can’t take your money:  I’m doing community service this week.” The officer 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.  “I can’t take your money,” said the barber once again.  “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.

As Mark Twain said:

Both politicians and diapers need to be changed often, and for the same reason.
