Dark jokes about dogs
This is a dark joke. But it's okay because it's about dogs. When I made this joke my colleague did not think it was funny. It made her sad. I think she did not think it was funny because unlike me she does not walk around her neighborhood flipping off dogs.
Yes, I do that. I flip off dogs, but only when they bark at me, meanly. If a dog ever barks at me nicely, in a gentle, friendly tone of voice, I simply smile and say a warm hello. I mean I would, if a dog would like to try it.
So we were talking about replacement costs for damaged books at the library. And my colleague mentioned sadly how a dog had chewed just a little bit of a book, but the book was like $28 and she sadly had to charge the person all that money.
I said "I always give them an option. I tell them they can pay for the replacement cost of the book, but if they bring in a document verifying that they put the dog to sleep we will clear the charges."
Oh. Now I feel kind of sad.
