Washing His Dog
A young boy, about eight
years old, was at the corner “Mom and Pop” grocery picking out a
pretty good size box of laundry detergent.
The grocer walked over, and, trying to be friendly, asked the boy
if he had a lot of laundry to do.
“Oh, no laundry,” the boy said, “I’m going to
wash my dog.”
“But you shouldn’t use this to wash your dog.
It’s very powerful and if you wash your dog in this, he’ll get
sick. In fact, it might even
kill him.” But the boy was
not to be stopped and carried the detergent to the counter and paid for
it, even as the grocer still tried to talk him out of washing his dog.
About a week later the boy was back in the store to buy
some candy. The grocer asked
the boy how his dog was doing.
“Oh, he died,” the boy said.
The grocer, trying not to be an I-told-you-so, said he
was sorry the dog died but added, “I tried to tell you not to use that
detergent on your dog.”
“Well,” the boy replied, “I don’t think it was
the detergent that killed him.”
was it then?”
“I think it was the spin cycle!”
