Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Great expectations

A vacuum cleaner salesman had refined his technique to the point that he was able to plunge straight into his spiel without ever letting the customer get in a word edgewise. When the woman opened the door, he stepped right into the house and emptied a large bag of dirt all over her clean carpet. "If this new vacuum cleaner does not pick up every bit of that dirt," he would say as he plugged it into the nearest electrical outlet, "I will eat the dirt myself."

This time, however, there was a snag. The vacuum cleaner failed to turn on. She watched him tug at his collar uncomfortably, while the machine continued to do nothing.

When, finally, he actually looked at her, she smiled. "Sir," she said, "if I had enough money to buy a new vacuum cleaner, I would have paid my electricity bill before they cut it off. Now, what would you prefer, a spoon, or a knife and fork?"
