    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.:eek:

    I hope you now are as enlightened as I am.

    Ditto for me too..............................whenever a service agency or customer service department has finished "servicing" me, I always ask them............."Do I get a kiss with that?"
