Citizens and politicians

One day a florist goes to a barber for a haircut. After the cut he asks about his bill and the barber replies, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The florist is pleased and leaves the shop. gudpak_in_the_mouth_of_corrupt_cartoon_by_rajesh_kc

When the barber goes to open his shop the next morning there is a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a laborer comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replies, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The laborer is happy and leaves the shop.

The next morning when the barber goes to open up there is a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then, a politician comes in for a haircut, and when he goes to pay his bill the barber again replies, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The politician is very happy and leaves the shop.

The next morning when the barber goes to open up, there are a dozen politician lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens and the politician of our country.
