Cold Feet

Because of a shortage of maids, the minister and his wife advertised for a Man-servant. The very next morning a nicely dressed young man knocked on the front door of the parsonage.

"Can you start the breakfast by seven A.M.?" quizzed the minister.

 
"I guess," answered the man.

"Can you polish all the silver, wash all the dishes, do the laundry, take care of the lawn, wash windows, iron clothes and keep the house neat and tidy?"

"Say there, preacher!" said the young fellow. "I came here to see about getting married but if it's going to be as much work as all that, you can count me out right now."
