**A man wrote a letter to a small hotel in a Midwestern town that he planned to visit on vacation. He wrote, “I would very much like to bring my dog with me. He is well groomed and very well behaved. Would you be willing to permit me to keep him in my room with me at night?” An immediate reply came from the hotel owner. “I’ve been operating this hotel for many years. In all that time, I’ve never had a dog steal towels, bedclothes, silverware or picture off the walls. I’ve never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly. And I’ve never had a dog run out on a hotel bill. Yes, indeed your dog is welcome at my hotel. And, if your dog will vouch for you, you’re welcome to stay here as well.”

**A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly the man realized that the next day he would need his wife to wake him a 5:00 A.M. for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, “Please wake me at 5 A.M.” He left it where he knew she would find it. The next morning the man woke up only to discover that it was 9:00 A.M. and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go see why his wife hadn’t waken him when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.  The paper said, “It 5:00 A.M. Wake up.”
