|A large store was having its spring sale on shoes and boots. It was the first day of the sale, and the shoe department was fully of women who were eagerly trying to buy them. There were all kinds of shoes and boots in a variety of colors, and the prices had been reduced a lot, because the store wanted to get rid of as many as possible in order to make room for their new stock.|
The cashiers were kept busy, and at one moment a woman came to one of them with her money in her hand and said, "I don't need a bag, thank you. I 'm wearing the shoes I bought." She pointed to them on her feet.
"Would you like a bag to put your old shoes in then?" the cashier asked politely as she took the woman's money.
"No, thank you," the woman answered quickly. "I've just sold those to someone else."

Okhil Babu wrote this letter to the Sahibganj divisional railway officer in 1909. It is on display at the Railway Museum in New Delhi. It was also reproduced under the caption Travellers tales in the Far Eastern Economic Review.
Any guesses why this letter is of Historic Value?
It led to the introduction of TOILETS in trains in India.
|A man is standing outside the gates of Heaven. Saint Peter approaches and says, "Can I help you?"|
The man replies, "No thanks."
He continues to stand on the clouds.
"Are you sure I can't help you?" says Saint Peter.
"No. That's fine," says the man.
Several minutes pass before Saint Peter approaches the man again.
"Look," he says, "You do realize that if you're here, you're dead - right?"
"Oh I realize that," replies the man.
"You realize that," Saint Peter repeats.
The man points down through the clouds, "I'm just waiting for the Medics down there to realize that!"
