If you have to write your ethical rules down, it's already too late. --- Tom Clancy
A minister parked his car in a no-parking zone in a large city because he was short of time and couldn't find a space with a meter. So he put a note under the windshield wiper that read: "I have circled the block 10 times. If I don't park here, I'll miss my appointment. FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES." When he returned, he found a citation from a police officer along with this note. "I've circled this block for 10 years. If I don't give you a ticket, I'll lose my job. LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION."
An applicant was filling out a job application. When he came to the question, "Have you ever been arrested?" he wrote, "No." The next question, intended for people who had answered in the affirmative to the previous question, was "Why?" The applicant answered it anyway: "Never got caught."

The young wife was in tears when she opened the door for her husband. "I've been insulted," she sobbed. "Your mother insulted me." "My mother!" he exclaimed. "But she is a hundred miles away." "I know, but a letter marked "Private, for George only" came for you this morning and I opened it." He looked stern, "I see, but where does the insult come in?" "In the postscript," she answered. "It said: 'Dear Alice, don't forget to give this letter to George.'

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Matt Re: Ink expiry date Dear Webby I must say, that opening your letter every morning is an excellent way to start any day. Now for my question. I've had my hp officejet v40 printer scanner fax and copier for 7 years or so, without a days trouble from it, until I changed the colour cartridge the other day, the brand new cartridge would only print in red. I was told to check the expiry date, by a techi friend, and it was out of date by 6 months. I was then told that my officejet could detect that it was out of date, hence wouldn't print correctly. I then put in another new cartridge, which wasn't out of date, and hey presto it printed perfectly, was this just a fluke? Both cartridges were still in their boxes, sealed. Thanks Matt Dear Matt The expiry date would not cause the printer to go on strike, but a dried up nozzle does. There is a reason they put an expiry date onto the cartridges! They know in what time frame the nozzles clog up when not in use. With liquid ink it's best not to stock up, unless you buy jugs and refill yourself, like we used to do until we switched to Laser. The dry laser toner has no expiry. It is already dry. Have FUN! DearWebby
A group of Winnebago drivers on route back to Florida for the winter were sitting in a truck stop. To blend in with the truckers, they had to complain about something, so they were exchanging notes about their ailments. "My arm is so weak I can hardly hold this coffee cup." "Yes, I know. My cataracts are so bad I can't see to pour the coffee." "I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck." "My blood pressure pills make my dizzy." "I guess that's the price we pay for getting old." "Well, it's not all bad. We should be thankful that we can still drive!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Make Your Own "Whiteboard" You can make little "white boards" with pieces of cardboard that are coated with a slick surface. Or use a piece of metal painted a light color. I recycled several different surfaces, including slick portfolio covers and an old magnetic play board, to use when I was tutoring a lot. Use pens meant for white boards. By Pam from L.A., CA Old cutting boards scraped or sanded, and painted with a marine laquer or varnish, make great indestructible laptop whiteboards. The same works too for room or cabinet doors. Just make sure you use a laquer or varnish, not a latex paint. Have FUN!

A minister who was very fond of pure, hot horseradish always kept a bottle of it on his dining room table. He offered some to a guest, who took a big spoonful. When the guest finally was able to speak, he gasped, "I've heard many ministers preach hellfire, but you are the first one I've met who passed out a sample of it."
