And here are two more timeless items from Paul Harvey’s For What It’s Worth:

Our For What It’s Worth Department wonders if you heard about the customer who presented a credit card at David Burr–the Irving, Texas, clothing store.

Young woman presented this credit card to the cashier.

The cashier asked, “What is your name?”

Customer said, “Diane Klos.”

Cashier asked, “And what is your address?”

Customer gave her address.  It was the address on the credit card.

But the cashier announced, “You came to the wrong place.  I am Diane Klos; that is my address and that is MY credit card.”

And THEN she summoned police.

Our For What It’s Worth Department says NOW it can be told:

Before the Carters left the White House . . .

Daughter Amy needed help with some homework.

It was a Friday and the homework assignment was due on Monday.

A question about the industrial revolution.

Neither she nor her mother quite understood the question, so mother Rosalyn asked a White House aide to ask the Labor Department.

Sunday afternoon a truck pulled up at the White House loaded with a computer printout.

Somebody assumed it was information the President urgently needed.

So the Labor Department had kept a full computer team working all weekend to prepare the information.

When mother Rosalyn was told that the research had cost hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars she was horrified.

But it was too late to do anything about it.

So the information was used to help Amy complete her homework.

On that homework assignment–Amy got a “C”.
