The pastor of a big city church ran an ad for a caretaker-housekeeper. The next day, a well-dressed young man appeared at the pastor's door. But before he could say more than, "Hello, I came to see about…," the pastor began questioning him.

"Can you sweep, make beds, shovel walks, run errands, fix meals, balance a checkbook, and baby-sit?"

"Whoa," the young man said, "I only came to see about getting married, but if it's that much work, I'm not interested."
