An elderly woman walked into the local country church.
The friendly usher greeted her at the door and helped her to walk up the flight of steps.
“Where would you like to sit?” he asked her politely.
“The front row, please”, she answered.
“You really don’t want to do that”, the usher said. “The pastor’s sermons are usually really boring”.
“Do you happen to know who I am?” the woman asked him.
“No, ma’am”, the usher replied.
“I happen to be the pastor’s mother”, she replied in a haughty manner.
“Do you know who I am?” the usher asked.
“No”, she said.
“Good”, the ushes replied as he turned his back and walked quickly out of the church.
This is just evidence that the best of intentions can often backfire on us. I don’t think I would like to be the target of that woman’s wrath any more than he would.
