Parable of the Haircut

A Modern Parable

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 came in for a haircut, and when he tried 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. 

As Ronald Reagan said:  BOTH POLITICIANS AND DIAPERS NEED TO BE CHANGED OFTEN….AND FOR THE SAME REASON!

If you don’t forward this, I question your sense of humor and patriotism.  No, nothing bad will happen.  However, you must live with yourself knowing that laughter is not in your future. 🙂

Remember, politicians got us into the mess we are in. Let’s oust them and start over with more ordinary but courageous citizens, as our founding fathers were.  Jerry
