The Haircut

Stolen in its entirety from The Feral Irishman.


Blessed are those that can give without remembering, and take without
forgetting.
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 went 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 comes in for a haircut, and when he tries 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 went to open up, there was a 'thank you'
card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.
Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill,
the barber again replied, 'I can not 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 went 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 politicians who run it.
