You Could Drink, Or…

Social Worker: Do you drink?

Man: Yes.

Social Worker: How much a day?

Man: Three six packs.

Social Worker: How much is a six pack?

Man: about $10.00.

Social Worker: And how long have you been drinking that much?

Man: Fifteen years.

Social Worker: So one six pack costs you $10.00, and you have three
six-packs a day, which puts your spending each month at about $900. In
one year, it would be $10,800. Correct?

Man: Yeah, that math works out. Sure.

Social Worker: If in one year you spend $10,800, not accounting for
inflation, the past 15 years puts your spending at around $162,000,
correct?

Man: Yep.

Social Worker: Do you know that if you hadn’t drank all that beer,
that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account
and, after accounting for compound interest for the past 15 years, you
could have now bought a brand new Ferrari?

long pause

Man: Do you drink?

Social Worker: No.

Man: Then why the hell are you driving a Chevy?

The School House of Life

Since the beginning of time , man has asked why he is here. We have all pondered this important question at times. Is there a universal answer?

And if so, is the answer the same for everyone, or does everyone need to find his own answers.

My recently published EBook on the meaning of life.

The Snow Plows Must get Through

The Plows Must Get Through!

One winter morning a couple was listening to the radio over
breakfast. They hear the announcer say, “We are going to have 8 to 10
inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side
of the street so the snowplows can get through.” Norman’s wife goes out
and moves her car.

A week later while they are eating breakfast and again, the radio
announcer says, “We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You
must park your car on the odd-numbered side of the street so the
snowplows can get through.” Norman’s wife goes out and moves her car
again.

The next week they are again having breakfast when the radio
announcer says “We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must
park—” and right then the power goes out.

Norman’s wife is very upset, and with a worried look on her face she
says, “Honey, I don’t know what to do. Which side of the street do I
need to park on so the snowplows can get through?”

With the love and understanding in his voice that all men who are
married to blondes exhibit, Norman says, “Sweetie, why don’t you just go
ahead and leave it in the garage just this once?”

The Pilot and the Navigator

The Pilot and the Navigator

The pilot was sitting in his seat and pulled out a .38 revolver.
The navigator eyed him suspiciously as he placed it on top of the
instrument panel.

After an uncomfortable pause, the pilot asks him, “Do you know what I use this for?”

“No, sir. What’s it for?” the navigator asked, even though he was pretty sure what was up.

“I use this on navigators who get me lost!” the pilot said.

The pilot smirked, and turned back to his flying.

A few minutes later, the navigator proceeded to pull out a .45 and
place it on his chart table, in full view of the pilot, but he didn’t
say anything.

The pilot finally had to ask: “What’s that for?”

“To be honest, sir,” the navigator replied, “I’ll know we’re lost long before you will.”

Why the Military Services Can't work Together

Why the Services Can’t Work Together

From a military buddy (active duty Air Force).

One reason the Services have trouble operating jointly is that they don’t speak the same language.

For example, if you told Navy personnel to “secure a building,” they would turn off the lights and lock the doors.

Army personnel would occupy the building so no one could enter.

Marines would assault the building, capture it, and defend it with suppressive fire and close combat.

The Air Force, on the other hand, would take out a three-year lease with an option to buy.
