The Difference between them and us

One day a florist goes to  a barber for a haircut.  After the cut he asks
about his bill and the barber  replies, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m
Doing  community service this week.’  The florist is pleased and  leaves the shop.

When the barber goes  to open his shop the next morning there is a ‘thank
you’ card and a  dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in  for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the
barber again  replies, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing  community
service this week.’  The cop is happy and leaves  the shop.

The  next morning when the barber goes to open up there is a ‘thank you’
Card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.


Later that day, a college  professor comes in for a haircut, and when he
tries to pay his bill,  the barber again replies, ‘I cannot accept money from
you.  I’m doing community service this week.’   The  professor is very happy and
Leaves the shop.


The next morning when the  barber opens his shop, there is a ‘thank you’
card  and a  dozen different books, such as ‘How to Improve Your Business’ and
‘Becoming  More Successful.


Then, a Congressman comes  in for a haircut, and when he goes to pay his bill
the barber  again replies, ‘I cannot accept money from you.. I’m doing
community service this week.’   The Congressman is very  happy and leaves the shop.
The next morning when the  barber goes to open up, there are a dozen
Congressmen lined up waiting  for a free haircut.

And that, my friends,  illustrates the fundamental difference between the
citizens of our  country and the members of our Congress.
