Story of the day – Jerome’s cure for cussing

When Johnny Riggs retired from his job inspecting bridges for the state highway department, Uncle Jerome hired him to work part-time at the store. It worked well except that Johnny had a habit of cussing which Uncle Jerome, who is a bit of a prude, found offensive.

Uncle Jerome talked to Johnny about his language several times, but try as he might, the words just seemed to slip out.

Finally, Uncle Jerome suggested “Johnny, I have an idea. You wear my coat today and see if that doesn’t keep you from cussin’.”

The thing seemed to work. Johnny didn’t let a single cuss word slip all day long and when they were closing up for the night, Uncle Jerome said, “Well I guess wearing my coat did the trick.”

“Yeah,” Johnny replied, ” it seemed to keep me from cussin’, but every time I sold a cut of meat today, I had a powerful urge to put my thumb on the scales.”
