Dry Cleaner

A traveling salesman was passing through a rural town in Vermont and decided to take a little time out in order to have some clothes cleaned in a hurry.

The town only had three streets so he was able to quickly locate a shop with a sign that read, "Cleaning and Pressing, 24-Hour Service."

After giving the man his suit, he said, "I'll be back for it tomorrow."

"Won't be ready till Saturday," replied the proprietor.

"But I thought you had 24-hour service," the customer protested.

"I do, son," the proprietor said.

"But I only work eight hours a day. Today's Thursday, plus Friday and Saturday, that's 24 hours."
