The postman that delivers to my office has this thing where he feels compelled to tell me a joke every day. I have a sneaking suspicion that more often than not he makes these jokes up on his own, maybe on the fly. They are terrible really, but delivered with such dry wit and honest enthusiasm that I just have to laugh; he’s just trying so hard to give me a chuckle. He sneaks them into our daily small talk, and so I have to really pay attention so as not to miss my cue. And so, without further adue, today’s joke, courtesy of the US Postal Service….
Postman: Yeah, so there was this really popular girl in my high school that just wouldn’t go out with me. I never gave up though, and I just kept asking her out. Finally I told her if she didn’t go out with me, I was gonna jump off a cliff.
Me: Really? *blinksmile*
Postman: Yeah, she ended up calling my bluff.
Me: *blink…..LOL* That’s cute….cliff, bluff…..yeah. *blinkgrinchuckle* Okies, see ya tomorrow!
I work hard for the money, don’t ya know…
