The Grain of Truth

From the Mailbag, this morning is a classic example of how a joke isn’t funny unless there’s a grain of truth at the center of it.

Community Service
 
 One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut he   asked about his bill and the barber replied, “I cannot accept money  from you. I’m doing community service this week.” The florist was   pleased and left the shop.
 
 When the barber came to open his shop the next morning, there was a  “thank you” card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.
 
 Later, a cop came in for a haircut, and when he tried to pay his bill,   the barber again replied, “I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing   community service this week.” The cop was happy and left the shop.
 
 The next morning when the barber arrived at the shop, there was a   “thank you” card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.
 
 Later that day, a college professor came in for a haircut, and when he  tried to pay his bill, the barber again replied, “I cannot accept  money from you. I’m doing community service this week.” The professor  was very happy and left the shop.
 
 The next morning when the barber opened his shop, there was a “thank   you” card and a dozen different books, such as “How to Improve Your   Business” and “Becoming More Successful.”
 
 Then, a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he tried to pay   his bill, the barber again replied, “I cannot accept money from you.   I’m doing community service this week.” The Congressman was very happy   and left the shop.
 
 The next morning when the barber came to the shop to open up, there  were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut. 

 And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between  the citizens of our country and the members of our Congress.
