Why I no longer work:

parrotMany years ago, a woman called me asking me if I knew anything about fixing a dishwasher. I told her I could take a look at it.  Since she had to go to work,  she told me she would leave the key under the mat  and for me to leave my bill on the counter and she would send me a check.

“Don’t worry about my Dobberman Spike. He won’t bother you, but whatever you do, do not, under any circumstances talk to the parrot!”

When I  arrived, I discovered the biggest and meanest  looking Dobberman I had ever seen. But the dog just  lay there, watching me go about his business.

However, the parrot drove me nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling, cursing, and name-calling.

Finally I couldn’t contain myself any longer and yelled, “Shut up, you stupid ugly bird!”

The parrot replied, “Get him, Spike!”

Moral of the story: be slow to speak, and most of all, slow to anger!
