A Sunday school teacher was telling her pupils the importance of making others glad. Now, children, said she, has anyone of you ever made someone else glad?
Please, teacher, said a small boy, I‘ve made someone glad yesterday.
Well done. Who was that?
Good boy. Now tell us how you made your grand mother glad.
Please, teacher, I went to see her yesterday, and stayed with her three hours. Then I said to her, ‘Granny, I‘m going home,’ and she said, ‘Well, I‘m glad’！
3. Keys Or Kiss
A friend of mine was giving an English lesson to a class of adult who had recently come to live in the United States.
After placing quite a number of everyday objects on a table, he asked various members of the class to give him the ruler, the book, the pen and so on. The class went very smoothly and the students seemed interested and serious about the work that they were engaged in until when my friend turned to an Italian student and said, “Give me the keys.”
The man looked surprised and somewhat at a loss. Seeing this, my friend thought that the student hadn‘t heard him clearly, so he repeated. “Give me the keys.” The Italian shrugged his shoulders. Then, he threw his arms around the teacher‘s neck and kissed him on both cheeks.
