Quotes of the Week
“A bad attitude is like a flat tire. You can’t go anywhere until you change it.” – Anonymous
“Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.” – Ronald Reagan
On Christmas Eve, Ned was desperate to find a gift for his wife. Always short of money, he thought long and hard about what that present might be.
Unable to decide, Ned went to target and in the cosmetics section he asked the lady, “I’d like to see some perfume.” She showed him a bottle costing $150.
“Too expensive,” muttered Ned. The young lady returned with a smaller bottle for $50.
“Oh, no,” he complained. “Still far too much.”
Growing rather annoyed at Ned’s attitude, the sales girl brought out a tiny $10 bottle and offered it to him.
Ned became really agitated, “What I mean,” he whined, “I’d like to see something really cheap.”
So the sales girl handed him a mirror.
