Hello Everybody! The Free Choice E-zine's Editor-In-Chief Lee Houston, Junior here because our regular hosts—Piper D. Katt and Koda Canine—have the 4th of July holiday weekend off here in the United States to be with their families.
Now I'll be totally honest with everyone up front and admit that America is far from a perfect country, as anyone who watches a nightly news cast can attest to.
Yet, while I'm not about to hop on my soap box during a Sunday Funnies, it's best to make the most out of what you have. Considering some countries don't have as much as others and some are even currently under siege by their "neighbors", but one thing we can all agree on is that—regardless of our location—laughter is healthy for both the body and soul.
So with that in mind, ONLY IN AMERICA....
Do we have handicap parking places in front of the most strangest places, like skating rinks.
Do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we probably didn't want to talk to in the first place.
Are our drug stores laid out in such a way that the sick have to walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while otherwise healthy people can buy cigarettes and snacks at the front.
Do we drive on parkways and park in driveways.
Do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.
We have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering because they're mass produced.
In the office we talk about anything but work while we only discuss work away from it.
Do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.
Do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.
So on that note♫, take care.
STAY SAFE! 😷
Only those among the police, fire fighters, emergency services, utility providers and the military should have to work the Fourth if necessary so if you're not among any of those august organizations, shame on your employers!
Otherwise have a great week and please be back here again next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!—lh,jr.
