With Gas Prices Going Up. . .

A young Nun who worked for a local home health care agency was out making her rounds when she ran out of gas. As luck would have it, there was a gas station just one block away. She walked to the station to borrow a can with enough gas to start the car and drive to the station for a fill up.

The attendant regretfully told her that the only gas can he had was just loaned out, but if she would care to wait, he was sure it would be back shortly. Since the nun was on her way to see a patient, she decided not to wait and walked back to her car.

After looking through her car for something to carry to the station to fill with gas, she spotted a bedpan she was taking to the patient. Always resourceful, she carried it to the station, filled it with gasoline, and carried it back to her car.

As she was pouring the gas into the tank of her car, two men watched her from across the street. One of them turned to the other and said, "I know that the good Lord turned water into wine, but if that car starts, I'm going to church every Sunday for the rest of my life."

...And the car started! Praise the Lord!

I hope that patient that uses that bedpan isn't a smoker. I'm envisioning something going awry.

Funny joke. Have a nice weekend.

Instead of worrying about rising gas prices, why not convert that gas back into cash in your pocket?

ridester.com will make it possible to do on a consistent bases. The service is unveiling nationwide in August and will revolutionize ridesharing the way eBay revolutionized auctions.
