Don't mess with Old People.

Whenever Muddear gets pissed off at us, she reminds us that she is 95 years old and proclaims, "It is a shame how young folks treat old people! When you get to be my age, you'll see, cause God don't like ugly!" One time Muddear was so mad at me she told me when she died she would come back and haunt me!

The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring.

The old man said, "No, I'd like to see something more special."

At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring over. "Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000" the jeweler said.

The young lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement. The old man seeing this said, "We'll take it."

The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the old man stated,"by check. I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I'll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds and I'll pick the ring up Monday afternoon."

Monday morning, the jeweler phoned the old man. "There's no money in that account."

"I know," said the old man, "But let me tell you about my weekend!
