The Job Transfer

On a flight getting ready to depart for Detroit, John was sitting on the plane when a guy took the seat beside him. The guy was an emotional wreck, pale, hands shaking, moaning in fear.

"What's the matter?" John asked.

"I've been transferred to Detroit; there's crazy people there. They've got lots of shootings, gangs, race riots, drugs, poor public schools, and the highest crime rate."

John replied, "I've lived in Detroit all my life. It's not as bad as the media says. Find a nice home, go to work, mind your own business, enroll your kids in a nice private school. It's as safe a place as anywhere in the world."

The guy relaxed and stopped shaking and said, "Oh, thank you. I've been worried to death. But if you live there and say it's OK, I'll take your word for it. What do you do for a living?"

"Me?" said John. "I'm a tail gunner on a Budweiser truck."

Watch out for that minding your own business! That can be really dangerous, especially if it attracts Sumdood's attention!

Whatever you do, don't read your bible or drink milk while standing on the porch minding your own buisiness, because then, "these two dudes" will run up for no reason and beat you up!

...at least, according to many young men in the ER who were "just turning their life around"...

Bwaahahahahahaha! Wing, you crack me up. :^) Besides, everyone KNOWS those young men are pure as the driven snow.

Of course, it seems that snow may have some tire tracks in it...
