 Important Lessons!!!

On the first day, God created the dog and said:

'Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this,
I will give you a life span of twenty years.'

The dog said: 'That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back
the other ten?'

So God agreed.

On the second day, God created the monkey and said:

'Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span.'

The monkey said: 'Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How
about I give you back ten like the Dog did?'

And God agreed.

On the third day, God created the cow and said:

'You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and
give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.'

The cow said: 'That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years... How about twenty
and I'll give back the other forty?'

And God agreed again.

On the fourth day, God created humans and said:

'Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years.'

But the human said: 'Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty,
 the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back,
and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?'

'Okay,' said God, 'You asked for it.'

So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves.
 For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family.
For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren.
And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you

 Fly in the Toilet !

When my friend's hubby went to the men's room in the Schiphol Airport
located in Amsterdam , he saw a fly and did his best to 'wash' it down
the drain....but failed. He figured the fly had super glue foot pads !!!
Now he knows why it was there!
In Amsterdam, the tile under Schiphol's urinals would pass inspection
in an operating room. But nobody notices! What everybody does notice
is that each urinal has a fly in it. Look harder, and the fly turns into the
black outline of a fly, etched into the porcelain. It improves the aim. If a
man sees a fly, he aims at it.

Fly-in-urinal research found that etchings reduce spillage by 80%.
It gives a guy something to think about. That's the perfect example of
process control.

Who says you can't potty train a man.

John was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business..

When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died,
he decided he needed to find a wife with whom to share his fortune.

One evening, at an investment meeting, he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.
Her natural beauty took his breath away.

"I may look like just an ordinary guy," he said to her, "but in just a few years,
my father will die and I will inherit $200 million."

Impressed, the woman asked for his business card.
Three days later, she became his stepmother.

Women are so much better at financial planning than men.
