Murphy needed his suit cleaned in a hurry, so he searched the small Bangor town which he was visiting until he found a dry cleaners with a sign that said “Cleaning and Pressing, 24 Hour Service”.
After explaining his needs to Finan, the shop owner, Murphy said, “I’ll be back for my suit tomorrow”.
“It won’t be ready until Saturday”, Finan replied.
“But I thought you had 24 hour service”, Murphy protested.
“We do, sir”, Finan said . “But we only work eight hours a day. Today’s Thursday. That’s eight hours today, eight hours Friday and eight on Saturday. That’s 24 hour service”.
