Now something from Sally

Being a maid.

There is a story about Dorothy Parker, the American author, whose maid handed in her notice after finding a live alligator in the bath one morning. Her note stated ‘I cannot work in a house where there is an alligator in the bath. I would have mentioned this when I took the job, but I didn’t think the issue would come up!’

Never miss an opportunity?

An elderly lady was introduced to a doctor at a dinner party and immediately struck up a conversation. ‘I wonder if I could ask you a question? I have been getting these pains in my side and up my right leg as well what do you think might be the problem?’

‘I’m sorry but I’m not that kind of doctor.. I am a Doctor of Economics.

‘Oh I see,’ said the lady, ‘Well, in that case should I sell my British telecom shares.’


Thanks for dropping in and we hope you are leaving with a smile on your face… Debby and Sally.

  1. I absolutely love the first one, Debby. And I fell for everyone! The bird one isn’t true, though. My husband, and quite a few men I know, talk the hind legs of several donkeys when they get together. You can’t get a word in edgewise.
    Sally, I love both of yours. The last one is so true, though.

  2. I did everything listed in the Ten Fun Facts! I’ve heard lots of stories about Dorothy Parker but this one was a new one on me. Thanks for the chuckles, both of you. xx
