September 4 Humor

# A newcomer to a small New England town was in the general store and noticed that the owner seemed to be very solicitous to one customer, not his usual demeanor. As he brought his purchases to the counter,  he remarked, “I noticed that you treated that last customer with a great deal of respect…”  The owner replied, “He is one of our early settlers.”    The customer looked puzzled and said, “He did not look to be even forty years old?”    “I don’t know how old he is”, answered the grocer, “He always settles his bill on the first of the month.”

@ With my old man I got no respect. When he told me I should start at the bottom, he was  teaching me how to swim.
