Town Talk

Travelling Saleswoman

A saleswoman is driving toward home in North Western Montana, when she sees a Native American Indian Maiden thumbing for a ride on the side of the road.

Since the trip had been long and quiet, she stops the car and the Indian Maiden gets in. After a bit of small talk, the Indian Maiden notices a brown bag on the front seat.

“What’s in the bag?” asks the Indian Maiden.

“It’s a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband,” says the saleswoman.

The Indian Maiden is silent for a moment then says, “Good trade.”

Consider this

Sarah, the town gossip and self-appointed supervisor of the town’s morals, kept sticking her nose into other people’s business. Several local residents were unappreciative of her activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.

However, she made a mistake when she recently accused George, a local man, of being an alcoholic after she saw his pickup truck parked outside the town’s only bar one afternoon.

George, a dedicated Christian and man of few words, stared at her for a moment and then just walked away without saying a word.

Later that evening, he parked his pickup truck in front of her house and left it there all night.
