A funny.

I've arrived a couple of minutes early at the library today. I am sitting in my car waiting for it to open.

Here it must be noted that the library is across the street from City Hall.

A woman in a fairly new silver Dodge Durango drives up and parks in the 15-minute parking in front of City Hall. She gets out, goes to the door and pulls the handle.

It doesn't open. She tries again. It still doesn't open.

She reads a sign on the door.

I cannot hear her, but I see she distinctly mouths the word "FUCK!" and returns to her car. She backs out of the parking space and is off.

I didn't go read it, but I'm pretty sure the sign said that City Hall would be closed in observance of Robert E. Lee's birthday.
