Her Sunday Newspaper
This is dedicated to all of us who are seniors, to all of you who know seniors, and to all of you who will become seniors. It pays to be able to laugh about it when you are!
"Where is my Sunday paper?!" the irate customer yelled into the phone when the newspaper office clerk answered.
"Ma'am?" the clerk replied, a bit confused.
"Where is my Sunday paper!?!" she repeated, even louder than the first time. "I only get one paper a week from you cretins, because it takes me that long to read it! And it's not here! Can't you idiots do anything right?!"
"Ma'am", said the newspaper employee, "today is Saturday. The Sunday paper is not delivered until tomorrow -- on Sunday."
There was quite a long pause on the other end of the phone, followed by a ray of recognition.
"Well, hell," she said, her voice finally calm. "So that's why no one was at church today."
