* The young couple walked into a car dealer’s showroom and was taken aback by the suggested price of compact car. “But that’s almost the same cost as a big car”, the husband said. “Well”,  said the salesman, “if you want economy, you’ve got to pay for it.”

* We were on a long and quiet car trip when my husband out of the blue said how glad he was that I was with him.  I was so touched. He is  a very loving man, but comments like this one are unusual. “are you happy we are together, glad I’m your wife, or are you just feeling mushy?” I asked. “I’m just glad you’re with me”, he answered, “so we can drive in the high occupancy carpool lane.”

@ Teacher: class, it’s an interesting linguistic fact, in English, a double negative forms a positive. In some languages though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language in which a double positive combine to make a negative. A student stood and said, “Yeah, right.”
