25 March 2018 – Amusements
Bad weather meant I was stuck overnight at O’Hare airport in Chicago. Along with hotel accommodations, the airline issued each passenger a $10 meal ticket, or “chit.” That evening after dinner I presented my meal ticket to the cashier.
“Is this chit worth $10?” I asked.
Looking up nervously, the cashier responded, “I’m sorry, sir. Was the meal really that bad?”
“Excuse me,” a young fellow said to an older man, “I’ve just moved here and I wonder if this town has any criminal lawyers?”
“Well,” replied the older man, “I have lived here all my life and all I can tell you is we are pretty sure we do, but no one has been able to prove it yet.”
A husband comes in from the garage. His wife asks, “What’s wrong?”
“I lost something,” he replies. “I thought I had put it somewhere safe in the garage.”
“How many safe places are there in the garage?” she asks.
“Clearly one more than I can remember.”
