The daughter of an elderly city council member asked her father why he didn't do something more useful with his time than just attend city council meetings.
It seemed talking about him doing something useful with his life was her favorite topic of conversation lately.
She didn’t think spending so much time worrying about city issues and attending so many meetings was good for him so she suggested he go down to the new senior center and hang out with some of the other people his age.
So to make her happy he did as she suggested; he spent an afternoon at the new senior center. When he got home, he decided to teach her a lesson about staying out of his business.
So when she asked, “How did it go at the senior citizen center, Dad?” he told her he joined a parachute club.
She immediately said, "Are you nuts, Dad? You’re almost 79 years old, and you're going to start jumping out of airplanes?"
So he proudly showed her the membership card he was given.
She read the card and yelled, "Dad, were you wearing your glasses? This is a membership card to a prostitute club, not a parachute club!"
"Damn," said the old city councilman. "I'm really in trouble now and I don't know what to do."
“What kind of trouble are you in now, Dad?” his daughter asked.
“I signed up for five jumps a week".
