A Laugh A Day Keeps The Doctor Away

A man had been driving all night, and by morning, was still far
from his destination. He decided to stop at the next city he
came to, and park somewhere quiet so he could get an hour or
two of sleep.

As luck would have it, the quiet place he chose happened to be
on one of the city's major jogging routes. No sooner had he
settled back to snooze, when there came a knocking on his
window. He looked out and saw a jogger running in place.
"Excuse me, sir," the jogger said, "do you have the time?"

The man looked at the car clock and answered, "Eight fifteen."

The jogger said thanks and left. The man settled back again,
and was just dozing off, when there was another knock on the
window and another jogger asked, "Excuse me, sir, do you have
the time?"

The man was a little irritated and growled, "It's twenty minutes
past eight!" The jogger thanked the man and left.

Now the man could see other joggers passing by and he knew it
was only a matter of time before another one disturbed him.
To avoid the problem, he got out a pen and paper and put a sign
in his window saying, "I do not know the time!"

Once again he settled back to sleep. He was just dozing off,
when there was another knock on the window. Another jogger
said, "Sir, it's eight thirty."
