The Haircut

One day a florist went to his local barber on Monday morning. After his haircut, he pulled out his wallet to pay his bill and the barber replied, "I cannot accept any money from you today.  This weekend my wife and I talked and we both agreed life has been good to us in this city and consequently this week I will do a community service  and all haircuts will be free." The florist was extremely impressed when left the barber shop. Bright and early the next morning a package arrived at the barber shop. It was a 'Thank You Card' and a dozen roses'.

The first customer at the barber shop on Tuesday morning, was the local baker.  When he tried to pay for his haircut, the barber replied,  "Life in this city has been good this week I cannot accept any money for haircuts - I want to do a community service." The baker was happy as he left the barber shop. The next morning when the barber arrived to open up shop there was a 'Thank You Card' and a two dozen donuts' waiting for him at the door.

The first customer on Wednesday morning was a local City Alderman, when he went to pay his bill, the barber replied, "I cannot accept your money; I am doing a community service this week to say Thank You to this wonderful community."  The Alderman smiled as he left. Within 30 minutes the other five city Alderman were at the barbershop waiting in line for their free haircuts and donut.
