The barber’s community service

On Monday, a florist went to a barbershop for a haircut. But when he tried to pay the barber, the barber said, “I can’t accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.”

When the barber went to open his shop on Tuesday, he found a thank-you card and a dozen roses waiting for him at the door.

Later that day, a baker came in for a haircut, and when he tried to pay the barber, the barber again said, “I can’t accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.”

On Wednesday morning when the barber went to open his shop, he found a thank-you card and a dozen cupcakes waiting for him at the door.

Later that day, an English professor came in for a haircut, and when he tried to pay the barber, the barber again said, “I can’t accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.”

On Thursday morning when the barber went to open his shop, he found a thank-you card and a dozen books waiting for him.

Later that day, a congressman came in for a haircut, and when he tried to pay the barber, the barber again said, “I can’t accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.”

On Friday morning when the barber went to open his shop, there were a dozen congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

    And then, later, the same congressmen passed legislation requiring that taxes still be collected even if no money is spent due to goods or services being given away or bartered, at the same rate that would have been collected. Then they never again returned for another haircut. 😉
