Only in America

This is funny, but true. Yes, only in America!
  1. Only in America…can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

  2. Only in America…there are handicap parking places in front of a skating rink. (And at many establishments, why are the handicap spaces not always the closest parking spaces?)

  3. Only in America…do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

  4. Only in America…do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a diet coke.

  5. Only in America…do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

  6. Only in America…do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage. (And... why do we park in the driveway, and drive on the parkway?)

  7. Only in America…do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won’t miss a call from someone we didn’t want to talk to in the first place.

  8. Only in America…do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

  9. Only in America…do we use the word ‘politics’ to describe the process so well: ‘Poli’ in Latin meaning ‘many’ and ‘tics’ meaning ‘bloodsucking creatures’.

  10. Only in America…do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
I read the other day about setting SMART goals.
S = Specific .
M= Measurable
A = Achievable
R = Realistic
T= Timely
That sounds like a good thing to do!

Joke of the Day
When the family car developed a slight knock, the wife asked her husband if he had bought regular or premium gas, but he couldn’t remember.

“You probably got the cheaper gas,” she said. “That could account for the engine running so rough.”

“No, the gas wasn’t cheaper!” he replied indignantly.

“Well, how much did it cost?” asked the wife.

“It cost the same as always,” said the husband. “I bought the usual twenty dollars worth.”
