Thursday Special ~ Charm School

Two well dressed ladies happened to start-up a conversation during an endless wait in Brisbane Airport Terminal. The first lady was an arrogant Victorian married to a wealthy business man. The second was a well-mannered elderly woman from Mount Isa, Queensland.

After a little while Victorian woman started by saying, “When my first child was born, my husband built a beautiful mansion for me.”

The lady from Mount Isa commented, “Well, isn’t that precious?”

The first woman continued, “When my second child was born, my husband bought me a beautiful Mercedes-Benz.”

Again, the lady from Mount Isa commented, “Well, isn’t that precious?”

The first woman went on, “Then, when my third child was born, my husband bought me this exquisite diamond bracelet.”

Yet again, the Mount Isa lady commented, “Well, isn’t that precious?”

The first woman then asked , “What did your husband buy for you when you had your first child?”

“My husband sent me to charm school,” declared the Mount Isa lady.

“Charm school?” the first woman cried, “Oh, my Lord! What could they teach you ??”

The Mount Isa lady responded,

“Well as an example… instead of saying, “Who gives a F * * k?”, I learned to say, “Well, isn’t that precious”.

Thanks Ramana, for this precious story!

    I think this is the same arrogant Victorian lady who saw a beautiful parrot in the pet shop window and asked the shopkeeper how much he was.
    “He is only $20.00.”
    “Why is he so cheap?”
    “Because he was raised in a house of prostitution and he says inappropriate things sometimes.”
    “That’s all right,it can’t be that bad and he is beautiful.”
    So she takes the parrot home and he looks around and says.” New house.New Madam.”
    Shortly two girls come in from school and the parrot says.”New house,new madam,two new girls.”
    Then the husband comes in and the parrot looks at him and says, ” Oh, Hello Keith.”

    Hi Folks, I am just checking in before I head off to bed. Another busy day here in Dublin. Life is good and the craic is mighty. It look like another full day tomorrow with extended family and perhaps a few I have not had the chance to meet before!

    One of these days I will get back to normal.
