How can a society that exists on instant mashed potatoes, packaged cake mixes, frozen dinners, and instant cameras - teach patience to its young?
Smith goes to see his supervisor in the front office.
"Boss,"he says, "I've been volunteered to help move furniture for my mother-in-law tomorrow, and my wife needs me to help with the attic and the garage, moving and hauling stuff."
"We're short-handed, Smith," the boss replies. "I can't give you the day off."
"Thanks, boss," says Smith, "I knew I could count on you!"
One of the mysteries of life is that occasionally some piece of it will be perfectly understandable.
Riley's mother gets off work at 5am. One morning Riley got up on her own for school, got dressed, did her hair and put her backpack on ... all without waking her mother. (Riley's mother takes turns with other moms taking the children to preschool and that day another mom was driving.) When Riley's ride came she left -- without waking her mother. When her mother woke up and Riley was gone she was obviously frantic. She called the school and found out Riley was OK.
That night at dinner her mother said, "Riley, don't ever do that again. Wake Mommy up when you go to school. I thought somebody stole you!"
Riley replied, "Mom, you know me. If anybody would steal me they would just bring me back!"
Life is said to be a game -- but how can we play if we don't know where the goal posts are?
Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint. Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.
The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week.
The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 6 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 3 months from then.
Why the different treatment for the two patients?
The FIRST is a Golden Retriever.
The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.....
God loves you,
