Man: No.

Girl: Maybe you drive a Mercedes or a BMW?

Man: No.

And with that she left the restaurant.

Waiter to man: Is everything alright sir?

Man to waiter: I earn a six figure salary, have my own house and drive a Porsche. But apparently that isn’t good enough for her.

If you want better answers, ask better questions….. that’s what successful people do.


The Colour Blind Association are holding a social evening next week – they’re going to paint the town grey.
