I often put silly, impertinent signs on my door to make the other residents of the Old Folks Home laugh. Today one said:
You talk and I'll listen
$50 per (50 minute) hour.
(Pro-rated $1.00 per minute.)
Free (instant) coffee
(Cookies at cost)
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.
