Proverbs 15:13 NIV
A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.
…Bank on a Blunder
As a bank teller, I was required to obtain identification from customers making
withdrawals, even if I knew them. On Mrs. Brady’s third visit to my window in a week,
she balked at my request for ID. “I can’t believe you don’t know me after all these
years,” she said.
A few minutes later, I was relieving the drive-up teller and was surprised to see Mrs.
Brady in the next car. “Hi, Mrs. Brady,” I said, laughing. “Back again so soon?”
“I’m glad you remember me,” she huffed, “because that girl inside never does!”
…Down Under Droll
While I was working at a delicatessen in Sydney, Australia, a woman overheard my
accent and asked if I was American. “Lovely!” she exclaimed when I told her that I was.
“I’ve been looking for one of your lot. My son is living in the States with his American
wife, and she sent me a recipe that calls for half-and-half. Could you tell me, luv, half of
wot and half of wot?”
