A Catholic priest was waiting in line to fill his car with petrol just before a long holiday weekend, and it was obvious that he was not alone, since there were a lot of other vehicles queuing at the pump.
The queue at the filling station slowly shortened, but there were many cars ahead of him.
Finally, the attendant who was doing his best to make sure that filling went as smoothly as possible motioned the priest toward a vacant pump.
“Father,” said the young man, “I’m so sorry about the delay. It seems as if everyone waits until the last minute to get ready for a long trip.”
Father Murphy chuckled, “I know what you mean. It’s the same in my line of business.”
