I heard about this elderly woman who attended a church service one Sunday morning. On getting to the Church, one of the ushers came to her excitedly, and led her to a seat not very far from the front row. The following conversation later ensued between the usher and the elderly woman.
Usher: This is a very good place mam; I believe you’ll like it. Please do enjoy the service!
Elderly woman: (Unimpressed) Excuse me my daughter, but I don’t like this place! I want to sit in the front row, beside the pastor.
Usher: (Laughing) But, Mam that is not possible! The front row is specifically reserved for the Pastor, his family, and certain elders of the church. Not for people like you!
Elderly woman: Miss Usher, do you by any chance, know who I am?
Usher: No mam; I don’t!
Elderly woman: Well, I am the Pastor’s mother; a very senior member of his family!
Usher: (Now very fidgety) Mam, do you by any chance know who I am?
Elderly woman: No, I don’t. And I don’t think I have seen you before either!
Usher: (Elated) Thank God for that! (Then she took to her heals, and disappeared from the vicinity).
Did I hear you say why? Well, your Guess is as good as mine!
*Attention please: This joke is only meant to brighten your day; it has nothing to do with religion. Thank you.
