Service

April 20, 2015 at 2:52 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

I became confused when I heard the word “Service” being used with these agencies:

1, Internal Revenue “Service”.

2, U.S. Postal “Service”.

3, Telephone “Service”.

4, Cable T.V. “Service”.

5, Civil “Service”.

6, State, City, County & Public “Service”.

7, Customer “Service”.

This is not what I thought “Service” meant.

But today I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them said he had hired a bull to “Service” a few cows.

BAM !!! It all came into focus. Now I understand what all those agencies are doing!!!!!

THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Man kept waiting over an hour for an omelette finally cracks (It takes only a few minutes to cook an omelette): “A furious New York diner lost his cool grabbing a restaurant manager by the neck before slamming him against a bar and into an elderly woman – after waiting more than an hour for his omelette, according to witnesses. Nicholas Dematteis, 39, flew into the rage while at restaurant Bocca East during brunch on Saturday afternoon, and demanded a free meal around 4pm because of slow service, police said. Dematteis was arrested and charged with assault following the incident, according to the New York Daily News. The 34-year-old manager made attempts to calm Dematteis down, who waited an hour and a half for his omelette, when he spewed a homophobic slur at the man, according to another manager Joseph Verdi.

Brave man says women aren’t smart enough to play chess: “The Queen is the most powerful piece in chess. But one of the UK’s most well-known grandmasters has angered women by saying they aren’t smart enough to play the game. Nigel Short, 49, said women were not suited to playing chess because it required logical thinking. The chess commentator and writer said women should accept they were ‘hard-wired very differently’ and weren’t as adept at playing chess as men. Mr Short, who was the first English player to play a World Chess Championship match, made the comments when explaining why there were so few women in competitive chess. Amanda Ross, the leader of the Casual Chess club in London, told The Daily Telegraph the comments were ‘incredibly damaging when someone so respected basically endorses sexism’. Less than two per cent of grandmasters are female”

Why men refuse to marry: “The state of matrimony is not just ailing. It is dying out faster than a mobile phone battery. According to the Office for National Statistics, marriage in Britain is at its lowest level since 1895. In 2011, there were just 286,634 ceremonies — a 41 per cent free fall from 1972, when 480,285 couples tied the knot. For an army of women, Mr Right is simply not there, no matter how hard they look for him. And the reason? When it comes to marriage, men are on strike. Why? Because the rewards are far less than they used to be, while the cost and dangers it presents are far greater. ‘Ultimately, men know there’s a good chance they’ll lose their friends, their respect, their space, their sex life, their money and — if it all goes wrong — their family,’ says Dr Helen Smith, a lecturer at the University of Tennessee and author of Why Men Are Boycotting Marriage, Fatherhood And The American Dream. ‘Men aren’t wimping out by staying unmarried or being commitment phobes. They’re being smart.’


Schooner of beer — three quarters of a pint

Australian Prime Minister upholds his country’s honor: “Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott thrilled players at a Sydney Australian Rules football club function by skolling a beer. Mr Abbott was asked to have a drink by University of Technology Sydney Bats coach Simon Carradous, and the Prime Minister happily obliged. It appeared to take the Prime Minister about six seconds to down the schooner, as players cheered … he drank from head-to-toe the entire schooner, dribbling little bits on his shirt… He was proud as punch.’ Mr Abbott is not the first Australian Prime Minister to show off his skolling skills, with former Labor Prime Minister Bob Hawke’s ability well documented.

Firemen respond to calls for ‘Help!’ in burning home – from two PARROTS: “The crew scoured a burning home in Boise, Idaho, searching for people shouting ‘Help!’ and ‘Fire!’ Eventually, to their surprise, they found a pair of squawking birds. The tropical creatures appeared to have been alone when flames began to sweep the property. But they seemed to know what to do. Both were pulled from the home and given oxygen. They are expected to survive. According to KBOI, the officers managed to contain the fire to just one room. It is being investigated and no people were found inside. Officials have yet to track down the birds’ owners.
