The Monastery

Postby sid_matheny » Fri Sep 22, 2017 4:33 pm

A man wanted to be a monk. He goes to a monastery and speaks to the Abbot.

The head monk says, “If you become a monk, you must remain mute at all times. You may say only two words every three years.”

The man agrees and enters the monastery.

After the first 3 years, the Abbot comes to him and says, “What are your two words ?”

“Food cold !”, the man says.

Three more years go by and the head monk comes to him and says, again, “What are your two words ?”

“Clothes dirty !”, the man replies.

Three more years go by and, once again, the head monk comes to him and says, “What are your two words ?”

“I quit !”, says the man.

“Well,” the Abbot says, “It is not unexpected and I think you've made the right decision. Throughout your time here, you’ve done nothing but complain !”
