A teacher was telling her class about the importance of dressing warmly in the winter, and to illustrate this, she told them the story of her neighbor's little boy.
"He went sledding without any coat, gloves, or hat," she said. "And ended up with a bad cold. Now, does anyone have any questions?"
A little boy in the back raised his hand. "Who's using his sled now?"
In my sociology class, we were instructed to write down answers to some questions the teacher was asking.
"Next question," announced the instructor. "How would you like to be seen by the opposite sex?"
I was thinking about my answer when the young woman next to me turned and asked, "How do you spell 'intellectual?'"
Stopping to pick up my daughter at kindergarten, I found out that the topic of "Show and Tell" that day had been parents' occupations.
The teacher pulled me aside. Whispering, she advised, "You might want to explain a little bit more to your daughter what you do for a living."
I work as a training consultant and often conduct my seminars in motel conference rooms.
When I asked why, the teacher explained, "Your daughter told the class she wasn't sure what you did, but said you got dressed real pretty and went to work at motels."
