Irritation, Aggravation and Frustration
A boy asks his father to explain the differences among irritation, aggravation, and frustration.
His father picks up the phone and dials a number at random. When the phone is answered, he asks, "Can I speak to Alf, please?"
"No! There's no one called Alf here," says the person who answered the phone.
His father hangs up. "That's irritation," he says.
He picks up the phone again, dials the same number, and asks for Alf a second time. "No-there's no one here called Alf. Go away. If you call again I shall telephone the police," the person says.
His father hangs up and says, "That's aggravation."
"Then what's frustration?" asks his son. The father picks up the phone and dials the same number a third time.
"Hello, this is Alf. Have I received any phone calls?" he asks casually.

A young mother was riding the bus with her 4 year old boy when he suddenly blurted out so that everyone in the bus could hear, "Look mom, see that man's nose, it looks soooo funny!!"
The mother was quite embarrassed and scolded her son.
Then she whispered to him that if there was something he wanted to say about someone he should wait until they got home, or at least where nobody could hear them, so that nobody would be sad.
A moment later, the boy blurted out in the same loud voice, "Look mom, we've got to talk about that big, fat, lady when we get home!!"

Speeding? Oh yeah...watch this!
A police officer pulls a guy over for speeding and has the following exchange
Officer: "May I see your driver's license?"
Driver: "I don't have one. I had it suspended when I got my 5th DUI."
Officer: "May I see the owner's card for this vehicle?"
Driver: "It's not my car. I stole it."
Officer: "The car is stolen?"
Driver: "That's right. But come to think of it, I think I saw the owner's card in the glove box when I was putting my gun in there."
Officer: "There's a gun in the glove box?"
Driver: "Yes sir. That's where I put it after I shot and killed the woman who owns this car and stuffed her in the trunk."
Officer: "There's a BODY in the TRUNK?!?!?"
Driver: "Yes, sir."
Hearing this, the officer immediately called his captain. The car was quickly surrounded by police, and the captain approached the driver to handle the tense situation:
Captain: "Sir, can I see your license?"
Driver: "Sure. Here it is."
It was valid.
Captain: "Who's car is this?"
Driver: "It's mine, officer. Here's the owner's card."
The driver owned the car.
Captain: "Could you slowly open your glove box so I can see if there's a gun in it?"
Driver: "Yes, sir, but there's no gun in it."
Sure enough, there was nothing in the glove box.
Captain: "Would you mind opening your trunk? I was told you said there's a body in it."
Driver: "No problem."
Trunk is opened; no body.
Captain: "I don't understand it. The officer who stopped you said you told him you didnĀ't have a license, stole the car, had a gun in the glove box, and that there was a dead body in the trunk."
Driver: "Yeah, I'll bet the lying jerk told you I was speeding, too."
