It's past hump day, you can either look at as your only half way through the week or enjoy the fact that you are on step closer to the weekend. Either way, kill the mid-week blues with a bit of laughter.

Never underestimate your own strength

A young man at this construction site was bragging that he could outdo anyone based on his strength. He especially made fun of one of the older workman. After several minutes, the older worker had enough. 

"Why don't you put your money where your mouth is?" he said. "I'll bet a week's wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to the other building that you won't be able to wheel back." 


"You're on, old man," the young man replied. "Let's see what you've got." 

The old man reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then nodding to the young man, he said with a smile, "All right. Get in."

This side up

The factory foreman inspected the shipment of crystal vases leaving the plant, and approached his new packer. He put his arm around the man's shoulder and said,

"Well, Ole, I see you did what I asked. Stamped the top of each box, 'This Side Up,Handle With Care."

"Yes sir," the worker replied. "And just to make sure, I stamped it on the bottom too."

Misguided Luggage

While checking his bags at the airport, a man became indignant with the employee who handled luggage. For several minutes he belittled the young man and criticized his every move. 

Surprisingly, the curb side porter didn't seem troubled by this man's verbal abuse. After the angry man entered the airport, a woman approached the luggage handler and asked:

"How do you put up with such injustice?" The young man said, "It's easy. That guy's going to New York, but I’m sending his bags to Brazil."


Trucker's Revenge

A truck driver stopped at a truck stop and ordered a cheeseburger. As he was ready to eat, a motorcycle gang pulled up. 

One of the gang members insulted him and ate his cheeseburger. The truck driver walked out of the truck stop.  A gang member said to the waitress:

"He's not much of a man, is he?" She said, "He's not much of a driver either. He just backed his 18 wheeler over 6 motorcycles."


Brother and Sister

The mother ran into the bedroom when she heard her seven-year-old son scream. She found his two-year-old sister pulling his hair. 

Soon, the mother gently released the little girl's grip and said comfortingly to the boy, "There, there, she didn’t mean it.

She doesn't know that it hurts." He nodded his acknowledgment, and she left the room. 

As she started down the hall the little girl screamed. Rushing back in, she asked, "What happened?" The little boy replied, "She knows now."
