Q. How long is a minute? A. It depends on which side of the bathroom door that you’re on!

Night At The Barn A lawyer and two friends--a Rabbi, and a Hindu holy man--had car trouble in the countryside and asked to spend the night with a farmer. The farmer said, "There might be a problem. You see, I only have room for two to sleep in the house. So one of you must sleep in the barn." "No problem," chimed the Rabbi. "My people wandered in the desert for forty years. I am humble enough to sleep in the barn for one evening." With that he departed to the barn, and the others bedded down for the night. Moments later a knock was heard at the door; the farmer opened the door. There stood the Rabbi from the barn. "What's wrong?" asked the farmer. He replied, "I am grateful to you, but I just can't sleep in the barn. There is a pig in the barn, and my faith believes that is an unclean animal." His Hindu friend agrees to swap places with him. But a few minutes later the same scene reoccurs. There is a knock on the door. "What's wrong?" the farmer asks. The Hindu holy man replies, "I, too, am grateful for your helping us out, but there is a cow in the barn. In my country cows are considered sacred and I can't sleep on holy ground!" That left only the lawyer to make the change. He grumbled and complained, but went out to the barn. Moments later there was another knock on the farmer's door. Frustrated and tired, the farmer opens the door, and there stood the pig and the cow.

HaHa very funny. We al know this is true. I had a boss one time that told us to close your eyes, and raise your hand when you think it has been 1 minute. Most raised their hands before 30 sec. She said when you have to put a caller on hold, and tell them to hold a minute, After 2-3 minutes they are mad because you said ONE min.She said to always say can you hold a moment, O ask them to hold, that it may take a few mins, but you will be back. After 3-4 mins if you still need them oon hold, Come back to say that you've not forgotten them.People are so impatient today!
