Tax season is no one's favorite time of year, so sometimes, the collection officials need to take action to make sure they get what citizens owe the government.

A taxpayer receives a notice

One day, a taxpayer received a strongly worded letter saying that his taxes were overdue.

The man was a bit surprised as the letter seemed to be a second notice and he was being threatened with legal action.

He immediately did his taxes and went into the collector's office to pay the bill.

Despite still being confused, he apologized to the collector and said that he must have overlooked the first notice.

He then asked the collector if he should be worried about going to jail or if he'd made it on time.

With a smile, the collector responded, "Oh, we no longer send out first notices. We've found that second notices are much more effective."

A flight attendant deals with passenger

One day, a flight attendant stood by as a passenger was attempting to stuff his belongings into an overhead compartment.

The luggage was clearly overloaded but the man kept on working at it. Finally, the attendant told the man he'd have to check in the bag.

The man responded with annoyance, saying, "When I fly with other airlines I never have this problem."

With a bright smile on her face, the flight attendant replied, "When you fly other airlines, I also don't ever have this problem."

An old woman phones a hospital

One older woman figured out what to do as she sat in a hospital after a few days of being admitted.

From her room at St. Joseph's Hospital, the senior lady made a phone call to the front desk secretary.

"Is it possible to speak to someone who might tell me how one of your patients is doing?" she asked.

The operator responded, "Sure. Just give me the name and room number of the person."

The old lady replied, "Norma Findlay, Room 302." The operator then said, "Let me put you on hold so I can check with the nurse."

A few minutes passed and the operator returned. "Oh, I have great news. Norma's nurse said she is doing quite well."

She continued: "Her blood pressure is fine, she did a blood test which came back normal, and her physical, Dr. Cohen, said she'll be discharged on Tuesday."

The old lady responded: Thank you so much! That's wonderful! I was really worried! God bless you!"

The operator told her, "You're welcome. Is Normal your daughter?"

"No," the old lady said. "I'm Norma Findlay in 302. No one ever tells me anything!"
