Daily Joke: Travel Agent Treats Elderly Couple to a 5-Star Holiday
This #joke of the day is about what happens when someone does something out of the kindness of their heart without asking any questions.
One day, a small, older woman and an older man were peering into a travel agent's office from outside on the street.
The agent inside could tell what they were both looking at. Promotional posters of exotic locations from around the world littered the wall inside in front of them.
The travel agent was rounding up a pretty good week in terms of business, and he could see that the couple felt dejected. He decided he'd do something very generous which he rarely does.
Old couple gets free vacation
The man called the couple into the office and told them: "I know that you must be on pension. You couldn't dream of having a holiday as in these photos."
He continued: "But I'm willing to send you both to an incredible resort. I'll pay for all the expenses. And I'm not taking no for an answer." The couple's eyes went wide. They were speechless.
The agent brought them to his secretary, whom he ordered to purchase two flight tickets and also to book a room at a five-star hotel. Of course, the couple didn't hesitate to accept the offer. Off they went on the trip.
The woman returns
After about a month, the little old lady returned to the agent's shop. The man was happy to see her. "How did you enjoy your holiday?" he asked with delight.
The woman answer: "The flight excited me, and the room was simply fabulous. I came here to thank you for everything. It was wonderful." Then she added something else.
"One thing puzzled me, though," the woman said. "Who was the old fart I had to share my room with?" So much for making assumptions.
Old woman throws a party
Another older woman earned enough to throw a party for her granddaughter. She wanted to give the little girl a great time for her sixth birthday.
The woman got everything to make the party exceptional: a caterer, a live band, and even a clown. When the day finally came, two men arrived and asked the woman for handouts.
The old lady agreed to give them food, but only if they chop up some wood at the back of the house. The men agreed and were grateful. As they spoke, guests started arriving.
The clown is missing
The caterers came, as did the band. Unfortunately, the woman got a call from the clown who said he'd be late due to traffic. He might not even be able to be there at all.
The woman was eager to give her granddaughter a great time, so she started entertaining the kids. She wasn't very skilled, though. As she performed, she noticed one of the men doing cartwheels on the lawn.
He swung from tree branches, did flips, and leaped into the air. The woman was amazed. She ran outside to ask the men to do it for the kids for $50. Her request was met with some hesitation.
As the other guy performed behind him, the man told the woman he'd ask his friend. He calmly walked over to the guy and asked: "Hey Willie... for $50, would you chop off another toe?"
