    SERVICE

    At one time in my life, I thought I had a handle on the meaning of the word "service."
    "It's the act of doing things for other people."
    Then I heard these terms which reference the word SERVICE:
    Internal Revenue Service
    Postal Service
    Telephone Service
    Civil Service
    City & County Public Service
    Customer Service
    Service Stations
    Then I became confused about the word "service." This is not what I thought "service" meant.
    So today, I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them said he had hired a bull to "service" a few of his cows. BAM! It all came into perspective. Now I understand what all those "service" agencies are doing to us.
    I hope you now are as enlightened as I am. :eek:

  5. It is no accident that the English word "service" is derived from the Latin term "servitium" which means slavery, which is in turn derived from the Latin word "servus" meaning slave. :eek::D
