This has been submitted by Ian Goold, a much respected aviation journalist. This is the only connection with the air travel industry, but we think it’s funny.
A florist goes to his barber for a haircut. Afterwards, as he pays for his trim, the barber replies, “I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing this to serve my community.” Very pleased, the florist left the shop. When the barber opens the next day there is a “thank you” card and a dozen roses on his doorstep.
A policeman comes in for a haircut, but when he tries to pay, the barber says, “I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing this as community service.” Very happy, the PC leaves the shop. The next day the barber finds a “thank you” card and a dozen donuts on his doorstep.
Later, a schoolteacher comes for a haircut, and when he tries to pay, the barber replies, “I can’t take your money, I’m doing this as community service.” The teacher goes away very happy and the next morning the barber finds a “thank you” card and a dozen useful books on his doorstep.
The barber’s MP (Member of Parliament) comes for a trim, but when he tries to pay he is told, “I cannot accept your money from you. I’m doing this as community service.” Very happy, the politician goes away. The next day when the barber opens up, he finds on his doorstep a dozen MPs – all wanting a free haircut.
