Prissy neighbor wanted her g-kids to see the chickens. I let the older onE collect the eggs, to which her citiot mother remarked, "See? The box is where they lay their eggs and, at night, they sleep in there."

I kindly corrected mom and showed the child the roost, where one of the girls had already retired for the evening. At least the 3 y.o. has it straight, now.

A neighbor did not want any of our eggs because they were convinced that, since we had a rooster, there were chicks inside the eggs.  Even after I explained the process, they still were not convinced.  Maybe they were still put off at the thought of eating fertilized eggs.

Yeah. Better we go back to the days where girls were "sheltered" from such information until 2 minutes before they walked down the aisle. That way, they could go off on the honeymoon petrified, and terrified of "That Beast" they'd just married.

I always did wonder If my mom had not been so sheltered if she soul still have had 7 kids in a little over 10 years.....

All of my kids grew up learning that "the birds and bees" meant a baby was going to be born after the mating was over...... and the girls understood that the birds and the bees meant the same thing for humans that it did for animals.

This comment was not too funny but my reaction to this guy is what got everyone else laughing.

 

Guy told me he wished he was a farmer because we had it so easy and we are rich with money.

 

Co-worker said she thought I was going to strangle him. I just looked at him and in my "not nice" voice explained the facts of farming and ranching and the cost of it all.

 

Had several people tell me they were so glad to finally see someone put this guy in his place.
