A female friend of mine would always walk naked to the shower in the mornings. There was never anybody around, so she never had to worry about being seen.
But a few years later, she cut down the hedge along one side of the yard since it blocked the morning sun. What she didn’t realize, was that this gave her neighbors complete vision of her daily nude walk to the showers through one of her windows.
Several times in the following weeks, she got startled when she spotted her neighbors out doing yard work, cheerily waving at her. She would realize that she wasn’t wearing a stitch, and quickly run to the bathroom, her cheeks beet-red with embarrassment.
This friend of mine knows first-hand how easy it is to fall into doing things out of habit after you’ve done the same things day in and day out. And when circumstances become different, it’s hard to change your ways – this is one such story.
A man was heading home from work. Unfortunately, his bus got canceled, so he had to call a cab. While sitting in the cab, he noticed that the driver missed a turn in an intersection.
The man carefully tapped the cabbie on the shoulder and said, “Sorry Sir, but…”
The driver screamed, “AAAAAAHHHH!”
The cabbie completely lost control of the car, nearly hit a bus, went up on the footpath, missed a biker, scraped a fire hydrant and stopped just 1 feet from a department store shop window.
For a full 3 seconds, everything went dead quiet in the cab.
Then the driver slowly turned around and said, “Look, don’t ever do that again. You scared the living daylights out of me!”
The passenger apologized and said, “I didn’t realize that a little tap on the shoulder would scare you so much.”
The cabbie replied, “Sorry, it’s not really your fault. Today is my first day as a taxi driver. For the last 25 years I’ve been driving a hearse!”
