Funny Business -- Pays Cash

often put silly, impertinent signs on my door to make the other residents of the Old Folks Home laugh.  Today one said:

Listening Service

You talk and I'll listen

$50 per (50 minute) hour.

(Pro-rated $1.00 per minute.)

Free (instant) coffee

(Cookies at cost)

Undivided attention.

Non-committal responses (if desired)

Sympathy and positive affirmation included

You see it is a joke, don't you?  What is funnier than the joke is that one resident gave me a dollar because I listen so well.

Funniest joke yet:  I kept the dollar.
