A call from the tax accountant

Hello, is this Miss Singleton?

- Yes, it is me.

Miss Singleton, this is John Smith, your tax accountant. I must inform you that your tax statement was rejected by the Tax Office. They say that your salary and your possessions are incompatible. Your salary as a secretary is too low for you to be able to afford a luxury apartment, a new Mercedes-Benz, expensive clothing, jewelry, vacations in Europe, etc.

- Oh, and what can I do about it?

Well, let's do the following: send me a recent copy of your principal source of income, and I'll see what I can do with it at the Tax Office.

- Very well, Mr. Smith. I'm making a photocopy of it right now, and I will fax it to you shortly.


Just got off the phone with a woman living in northern Ontario, near the Manitoba border. She said that since early this morning the snow is nearly waist-high and is still falling. The temperature is dropping and is at about-15degrees, and the north wind is increasing to near gale force. Her husband has done nothing but look through the kitchen window and just stare. She says that if it gets much worse, she may have to let him in.

She got the job hands down

The woman applying for a job in a lemon orchard seemed to be far too qualified for the job, given her arts and education degrees and her jobs as a social worker and school teacher. The foreman frowned and said, ”I have to ask you this: "Have you had any actual experience in picking lemons?"

"Well, as a matter of fact, I have!" she said. "I've been divorced three times, owned two Falcons, supported the Tigers, and I voted for Julia Gillard."
