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.
