A Little Sunday Humor

EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH
 
This is the level of dedication we expect from all staff - keep up the good work!!!

Overheard in a Socialized Medicine Hospital
A sweet grandmother telephoned St. Joseph’s Hospital. She timidly asked, "Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?"

The operator said "I'll be glad to help, dear. What's the name and room number?"

The grandmother in her weak tremulous voice said, "Norma Findlay, Room 302."

The operator replied, "Let me place you on hold while I check with her nurse."

After a few minutes t he operator returned to the phone and said, "Oh, I have good news, her nurse just told me that Norma is doing very well. Her blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back as normal and her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged on Tuesday."

The grandmother said, "Thank you. That's wonderful! I was so worried! God bless you for the good news."

The operator replied, "You're more than welcome. Is Norma your daughter?"

The grandmother said, "No, I'm Norma Findlay in 302. No one tells me anything"

Why It's Important To Understand English
I had a bunch of Canadian dollars I needed to exchange, so I went to the currency exchange window at the local bank.

Short line! Just one lady in front of me… an Asian lady who was trying to exchange yen for dollars and she was a little irritated.

She asked the teller, 'Why it change?? Yesterday, I get two hunat dolla fo yen. Today I get hunat eighty?? Why it change?'

The teller shrugged his shoulders and said, ‘Fluctuations’.

The Asian lady says, 'Fluc you white people, too'.

You know, one should really ask permission before one puts a picture of a fellow blogger on their web site. However, I will let you slide only because it shows my wonderful work ethic.

LOL! What a riot.

The person in the stall probably wanted to check his email on company time.


I used to work the graveyard shift at Rincoln Annex Post Office and I went to the bathroom a LOT--it was my only escape from the drudgery.

I often chuckle, but rarely laugh at jokes. This one.. I laughed. Great joke. A tad racist. But...

"Fluctuations" ... ha!!!!!

By the way, that bathroom video was hilarious too. Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless really played along well with that prank.

I'm SO taking my laptop into the bathroom now.

That angle of the woman in the picture looks like you can get some awesome leverage.

Just grossed myself out now realizing that it's a picture of a woman doing poop.

And we all know...

...women don't poo.

Please, let me keep that thought.
