    The Haircut

    One Monday, a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the
    cut he asked about his bill and the barber replied, ‘I cannot

    accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’
    The florist was pleased and left the shop.

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

    Later on Tuesday, a cop came in for a haircut, and when he tried
    to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money
    from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The cop was
    happy and left the shop.

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

    Later on Wednesday, a college professor came in for a haircut, and
    when he tried to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot
    accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’
    The professor was very happy and left the shop.

    The next morning there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen
    different books, such as ‘How To Improve Your Business’ and
    ‘Becoming More Successful.’

    Then on Thursday, a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he
    went to pay the bill the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept
    money from you. I’m doing community service this week’ The
    Congressman was very happy and left the shop.

    The next morning when the barber went to open up, there were a
    dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.
