THE HAIRCUT

THE HAIRCUT


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 cannot 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.

Same is true for lawyers. They would have the entire firm at the barbers door the next day, with a contract in writing assuring no future need for compensation, unless in a state that recognizes oral contracts.
