the cash register or inspect the polish on his shoes or crack
his lumpy knuckles while he waited for me to guttle my ice

Raising children

A elderly gentleman was strolling through a quiet residential
neighbourhood when he came upon a little boy sitting on
the kerb, crying. “What’s the trouble, son?” he asked. “Are you
“Worse than that,” the youngster sobbed. “Mom lost her book
on child rearing and now she’s using her own judgement!”             Hagar
Witty waiter
The head waiter of a five-star, elegant restaurant recoiled in
disgust as a man in muddy hip wader boots, frayed and torn
jeans, dirty leather jacket, long stringy dirty hair and a beard
with flecks of long-ago food marched right towards him.
The man said, “Yo, bucko, where’s the bathroom?”
The head waiter calmly replied, “Go down the hall and turn left.
When you see the sign marked ‘Gentlemen’, pay absolutely no
attention to it and go right inside.”

Sunday School
The Kindergarten Sunday School class was discussing prayer
and the children seemed aware that the way you end a prayer
was with the word “Amen.”
“Does anyone know what ‘Amen’ means?” the teacher asked.
There was a long silence. Then one little boy piped up, with
appropriate, computer-age gestures, and said, “Well, I think it
means, like, ‘Send’.”

At his 103rd birthday party, my grandfather was asked if he
planned to be around for his 104th.
“I certainly do,” he replied. “Statistics show that very few
people die between the ages of 103 and 104.”
