This joke has gotten me more mileage than I can keep track of. Especially if you’re a seminary educated pastor working in a rural area, you need to learn this joke.
A young man comes back to his home town after finishing his college degree. He goes to his local grocery store goes up to the owner and says
“Excuse me sir, I’d like to speak to you about getting a job here”
The owners says to the young man
“Ok, grab that broom over there in the corner and when I’m done with this customer I’ll come over and talk to you about the details” and goes back to talking with the customer.
The young man interrupts the owner and says
“I’m sorry sir, I don’t think you understand. I have a college education.”
The owner pauses and thinks for a second. Finally he says
“oh…..ok…..well have a seat over there and when I’m done I’ll come and show you how to use a broom”
