A young priest got up in the morning and went to breakfast.
On his way there, he passed two nuns and he said to them, “Good morning sisters”.
The two nuns looked at him in a strange way and replied in a sing song manner, “You got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.”
This stunned the young priest, who thought that he had been very polite, but he decided to just continue on his way.
He then encountered a monk a little while later along the way and he said, “Good morning Brother”.
The monk also replied to him in a sing song voice, “You got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning”.
The young priest was now very confused at this, but still continued on his way.
He had walked a little further and then he came across a fellow priest. He said to him, “Good morning Father”.
The priest also replied in a sing song manner, “You got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.”
By now the priest was mad and really frustrated because he had no idea what everyone he met meant.
He continued his walk to the dinning hall, not saying a word to anyone.
WHen he arrived at the dining hall, the Bishop saw him and said, “Father …”
The young priest was not going to take any more, even from the Bishop. He was by this time in no mood for any more of this.
He looked at the Bishop and said, “NO! I did not get up on the wrong side of the bed this morning!”
The Bishop looked at him, stunned, and said “What?”
The priest realized his mistake and said, “I am sorry your holiness, what is it you wanted?”
The bishop looked at him and said, “All I was going to do was ask you why you had on Sister Anne’s shoes?”
