A Community Service Barber

One day, a florist goes to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill and the barber replies, "I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week."  The florist was pleased and left 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 policeman 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 policeman 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 Member of Parliament comes in for a haircut. 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 Member of Parliament is very happy and leaves the shop.

The next morning when the barber goes to open up, there are a dozen Members of Parliament 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 Parliament.
