Let’s hear it for a diamond in the rough. Perhaps reviving your faith in traditional values and Southern hospitality. Dale Dickerson is an alderman (councilman) for the town of Olive Branch, MS. He has to run for office and compete with all the others that are clamoring for this coveted position. Apparently, the citizens of Olive branch made the right choice to guide their town as Dale (and his wife) proved this year. Dale ordered a beautiful diamond bracelet for his wife online, to the tune of $2000. That was pretty trusting in itself, but when they got the box, they found they had been sent 48 matching diamond bracelets. Rather than hide them or sell them or give them to political supporters the Dickerson’s did the right thing and called the company and told them what happened.
In fact, Dale said he was nervous knowing that he had $100,000 of fencible jewelry hanging around his house. He called Atlanta-based Jewelry Unlimited: “The manager came on, and I could tell he had a lot of panic in his voice,” Dickerson said with a smirk. After assessing the situation, the manager followed up with an email to Dickerson, thanking him for his honesty and providing a pre-paid shipping label for returning the inventory. By arrangement they sent the box back, with insurance. The Dickerson’s received a second package — but this time, it was sent intentionally. It was a pair of diamond earrings that Jewelry Unlimited sent as a thank you gift. Clearly, the person who scored the most in this situation was Dickerson’s amused wife, Sherry. “I was like, ‘You are kidding me!” she said of first learning about the diamonds. She added that she absolutely adores her bracelet, but joked, “You know, 48 would have looked better, wouldn’t it? No, I’m kidding! I love the bracelet.”
Honesty is the best policy
Volodymyr Zelenskyy is a backwards politician.
Most politicians act like heroes to get elected and comedians while in office.
I parked my car outside the Ottawa parliament building. “Sir, you can’t park here,” said a cop. “This is where our politicians work, Eh”
“Don’t worry, I’ve locked it.”
How do politicians wrap presents?
With lots of red tape.
The next vaccine’s trial should be done on politicians first,
If they survive the vaccine is safe, if they don’t the country is safe.
In a schoolboard meeting the president admitted, “Honesty is the best policy,
OK, now what’s the second-best policy?”
