    For Your Enjoyment...

    Better safe than sorry

    Two gas company servicemen, a senior training supervisor and a young trainee were out checking meters in a suburban neighborhood. They parked their truck at the end of the alley and worked their way to the other end. At the last house a woman looking out her kitchen window watched as they checked her meter.

    Finishing the meter check, the senior supervisor challenged his younger co-worker to a footrace down the alley back to the truck to prove that an older guy could outrun a younger one. As they came tearing up to the truck, they realized the lady of that end house was huffing and puffing right behind them. They stopped immediately and asked her what was wrong.

    "When I saw two gasmen running as hard as you were," gasped the woman, "I figured I'd better run too!"

    A Lipstick Problem

    According to a radio report, a middle school in Oregon was faced with a unique problem.

    A number of girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

    Finally, the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night.

    To demonstrate how difficult it was to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance guy to clean one of the mirrors. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it into the toilet and then cleaned the mirror.

    Since then there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

    Pushing It to the Limit

    A motorist was mailed a picture of his car speeding through an automated radar. A $40 speeding ticket was included.

    Being cute, he sent the police department a picture of $40.

    The police responded with another mailed photo ...of handcuffs.
