Give and take
My friend's preparations for a visit from her children included a trip to the bank. Waiting in line at the teller's window, she lamented to the middle-aged man behind' her,"My children are in their 20's，and I'm still giving them money. When does it end?"
"I'm not sure，"the man replied while glancing uncomfortably at a paper in his hand，"but I`m not the one to ask. I'm here to deposit a check my mother gave me."
The Third Operation 第三次手术
The patient was recovering after an operation. His friend came to visit him and asked how he was getting along.
"Well," the patient began, "after my first operation they had to cut me open again. The doctor had to take out the sponge left in me." "But you got over it all right?"
"Oh, yes. Only I had another operation yesterday. They found that they had operated on the wrong part."
"Thank God. You're all right now, though," the friend said encouragingly.
At that time the doctor came in saying, "Has anyone seen my hat around here? I left it somewhere yesterday."
Tooth extraction 拔牙
"I'm sorry, Madam, but I shall have to charge you twenty dollars for pulling your boy's tooth."
"Twenty dollars! Why, I understand you to say that you charged only four dollars for such work!"
"Yes, but this youngster yelled so terribly that he scared four other patients out of the office."
Little Johnny asked his grandma how old she was.
Grandma answered, "39 and holding."
Johnny thought for a moment, and then said, "And how old would you be if you let go?"
