Reminds me of a blind person who spoke recently about a restaurant

experience she had. The manager gave her, and her friends, a very hard time

about her desire to have her seeing-eye dog enter the restaurant. He kept

asking why it was necessary for her to have the dog with her in the

restaurants, and she and her friends kept insisting that he could not deny

entrance to the dog. Finally he gave in. The dog was very well behaved, and

as the people started to leave the manager complimented everybody on the

behavior of the dog but once again asked why it was really necessary that

it be allowed in the restaurant. By this time the blind person had started

to leave, and the manager realized his big mistake. He said, "Oh, I am very

sorry. I thought you said 'senile dog.'"
