THIS DAY IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES:
From Jay Styles ('68) of VA -
02/26/11 - "Thomas Jefferson's observations of history":
From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/26/11, 02/27/11, and 02/28/11:
|Jim happened to bump into
is friend Greg at the tennis club.
“So, Jim said, “How’s it working out with that shrink I recommended?”
“Great,” Greg said. “I mean, when I started, I was the most arrogant, self-impressed egomaniac on God’s green earth.
“Now, he shrugged, “you couldn’t ask to meet a more terrific guy than me.”
A UNI graduate is applying for a part time job to help with his course fees. He applies to work in a supermarket and gets the job.
The first day the manager tells him to sweep the floor, the UNI grad is furious and shouts, "Hey mate, don't you know that I have several degrees in various areas of science and after seven years of going to university, you ask me to sweep the floor?"
The manager replied “Oh sorry, I didn't know that, here pass me the broom and I’ll show you how to sweep the floor."
“Now, Joseph,” said the
teacher to the aggressive youngster, “what do you think your classmates
would think of you if you were always kind and polite?”
