Refueling

Once my wife and I had to take 6 AM - 11AM EVERYDAY! a flight that had 4 other stops before arriving at the Dallas-Forth Worth Airport. At the first stop, a little white truck drove up to the plane and my wife watched it pull up to the wing. She asked, "What's that truck doing?" I explained that some airlines don't completely fuel up a plane for various reasons & we were taking on more fuel. This process was repeated at the next three stops, and my wife watched the plane being fueled DAilY lunch SpEciAlS! each time. GREAt FooD FEAtuRinG: At the last stop, I said, "You know, in spite of all Steak-Ribs-Fried chicken these delays, we're making pretty good time." AnD MoRE! My wife pointed out the window and said, Mon-Sat 6aM - 10pM aM pM "I don't know. That little truck is keeping up with us." Sun 6 - 3 cALL IN your order!

Gotta Love It

Hospital regulations require a wheelchair for patients being discharged. However, while working as a student nurse, I found one elderly gentleman-already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet--who insisted he didn't need my help to leave the hospital. After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator. On the way down I asked him if his wife was meeting him. "I don't know," he said. "She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown."

Because I was processing my first accident report at the transport company where I worked, I was being particularly attentive. The driver had hit a deer on the highway, and the result was a severely damaged hood and fender. My serious mood was broken, however, when I reached the section of the report that asked, "Speed of other vehicle?" The driver had put, "Full gallop."

Laws of Parenting

1. The later you stay up, the earlier your child will wake up the next morning. 2. For a child to become clean, something else must become dirty. 3. Toys multiply to fill any space available. 4. The longer it takes you to make a meal, the less your child will like it. 5. Yours is always the only child who doesn't behave. 6. If the shoe fits...it's expensive. 7. The surest way to get something done is to tell a child not to do it. 8. The gooier the food, the more likely it is to end up on the carpet. 9. Backing the car out of the driveway causes your child to have to go to the bathroom.

Lost

Five year old Little Johnny was lost, so he went up to a policeman and said, "I've lost my dad!" The policeman said, "What's he like?" Little Johnny replied, "Beer and women."

Take Your Medicine

A doctor told Mrs. Stone to give her husband one pill and one drink of whiskey a day to improve his stamina. A month later, when Mrs. Stone came in for another visit, the doctor asked, "How are we doing with the pill and the whiskey?" Mrs. Stone answered, "Well, he's a little behind with the pills, but he's about six months ahead with the whiskey."

Arkansas Trooper

Two Texans are driving through Arkansas when they get pulled over by a State Trooper. The Trooper walks up, taps on the window with his nightstick, the driver rolls down the window and WHACK!...The trooper smacked him right on top of the head with the stick. The driver finally comes to and asks, "What the heck was that for!?" The Trooper says, "You're in Arkansas son. When we pull you over, you better have your license ready when we get to your car." Not wanting to make his situation with the law any worse, the driver says, "I'm sorry, officer, I'm not from around here." The Trooper runs a check on the guy's license, and he's clean. He gives the guy his license back and walks around to the passenger side and taps on the window. The passenger rolls his window down, and WHACK! The Trooper smacks him with the nightstick also. After he recovers, the somewhat dazed passenger asks, "Holy smokes man! What is that for?!" The Trooper answers, "Just making your wishes come true." Still incredulous, the passenger follows up with, "Huh?" The Trooper says, "I know how you Texans are! Two miles down the road you're gonna say, 'I wish that redneck jerk would've tried that with me!'"

Getting A's

A professor stood before his class of 20 senior organic biology students, about to hand out the final exam. "I want to say that it's been a pleasure teaching you this semester. I know you've all worked extremely hard and many of you are off to medical school after summer. So that no one gets their GPA messed up because they might have been celebrating a bit too much this week, anyone who would like to opt out of the final exam today will receive a "B" for the course." There was much rejoicing amongst the class as students got up, passed by the professor to thank him and sign out on his offer. As the last taker left the room, the professor looked out over the handful of remaining students and asked, "Any one else? This is your last chance." One more student rose up and took the offer. The professor closed the door and took attendance of those students remaining. "I'm glad to see you believe in yourself." he said. "You all get "A's."

Getting a Passport

The senior citizen raised her right hand as the clerk asked, "Do you swear to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, domestic or foreign?" The sweet old face paled and the voice trembled as she responded, "Well, I guess so, but ... will I have help, or will I have to do it all by myself?"
