Ze Older Stuff


I hope Thursday’s post, given two days to sink in, has done so. Now for something a little lighter:

At one time in my life, I thought I had a handle on the meaning of the word “service.” “The act of doing things for other people.”

Then I heard the terms:

  • Internal Revenue Service
  • Postal Service
  • Telephone Service
  • Civil Service
  • City/County Public Service
  • Customer Service

And I became confused about the word “service.” This is not what I thought “service” meant.

Then today, I overheard two farmers talking and one of them mentioned that he was having a bull over to “service” a few of his cows.

SHAZAM! It all came into perspective. Now I understand what all those “service” agencies are doing to us.

Have a wonderful day, and I hope you are now as enlightened as I am.
