My husband works in a former supermarket that was remodeled to accommodate professional offices.
One day he overheard his receptionist giving directions over the phone.
"Remember the old grocery store?" she asked the caller. "Well, you'll find us in the meat department."
A taxpayer received a strongly worded "second notice" that his taxes were overdue. Hastening to the collector's office, he paid his bill, saying apologetically that he had overlooked the first notice.
"Oh," confided the collector with a smile, "we don't send out first notices. We have found that the second notices are more effective."
