Misha is talking to her friend Sophie. "Do you remember I told you that my son David, the doctor, had been treating one of his patients for yellow jaundice for over ten years?"

(#2193) How to get new business
A new Jewish restaurant called 'The Fresser' opens in Golders Green and Ruben rings to book a table to celebrate his forthcoming birthday.
"How can I help you?" asks the owner.
"I'd like to book a table for Sunday evening please," replies Ruben.
"Certainly sir," replies the owner. "How many of you are coming?"
"It's my birthday and there will be twelve people coming," replies Ruben.
"Thank you sir," says the excited owner. "And what time shall I book the table for?"
"Eight o'clock will be fine," replies Ruben.
"OK," says the owner, "can I have your name, please."
"Before I give you my name," replies Ruben, "I need to know whether you honour credit cards."
"Honour credit cards?" replies the owner in a slightly raised voice. "We not only honour them, but we also positively love, cherish and obey them."

[My thanks to Ilan H for the following]
Fay goes to see Rabbi Gross. "I have a problem, rabbi," she says. "Yesterday, after yet another argument with my Ruben, he walks out on me and tells me he isn't coming back. What I want to know, rabbi, is whether you think he will return."
Rabbi Gross gets up, walks over to his desk and opens a large box. He flicks through some paperwork, then closes it saying, "it's not in here." He then opens another large box and again flicks through some paperwork before closing it, saying "it's not in here either." He then opens a third large box and as he is flicking through some papers, he says, "Ah, here they are." He then removes a pair of glasses from the box and walks back to Fay.
"Well rabbi," asks Fay, "what do you think? Will Ruben return to me?"
Rabbi Gross puts on his glasses and stares closely at Fay for a while. He then replies, "No Fay, I don't think he will."

(#2195) Diplomacy
[My thanks to Hilary A  for the following]
It's the morning after her honeymoon and Sarah is in her new kitchen. She has just spent the last hour preparing her very first breakfast for her husband Maurice. She's made him scrambled eggs on toast. Maurice sits down at the table and takes his first mouthful of her cooking, with Sarah watching anxiously for his reaction.
"Maurice, how is it?" she meekly asks.
"Well my lovely darling," replies Maurice, wiping his lips on his napkin, "you could have probably beaten the eggshells for just a little bit longer. But apart from that, I think you've started your cooking life very favourably."

(#2196) Totality
Rabbi Shmuel dies and is now standing in a line of people waiting  to find out whether they are going to heaven - a line containing, among others, the righteous, academics, religious leaders, and the virtuous. As Rabbi Shmuel looks around, he sees an angel bowing down and talking with respect to a rather rough looking man. The angel then leads this man to the front of the line.
Rabbi Shmuel is very surprised by this action. "How odd," he says to himself. "It seems that this ordinary looking man is going to get precedence over all of us here. Who can this man be?"
The angel notices the look of surprise on Rabbi Shmuel's face and so goes over to him and says, "I know it looks a bit odd, rabbi, but this man is a taxi driver."
"But if that is all, why does it make him a special person?" asks Rabbi Shmuel.
"Let me explain, rabbi," replies the angel. "It's simple really. We obviously realise up here that in your lifetime, you have influenced quite a lot of people and explained to them why they should believe in Hashem. But the thousands of people who have travelled in this man's taxi immediately began to pray with 100% total sincerity."

(#2199) Timeliness is Godliness
[My thanks to Hilary A for the following]
It's 10.30am and Hyman is only just arriving at his London office. As he walks past the reception desk, he hears some giggling. So he turns around and asks, "So nu Natalie, what's so funny?"
"You've got a black smudge on your face and lips," replies Natalie, still smiling. "What have you been up to then?"
Wiping his face with his handkerchief, Hyman replies, "I've been up to nothing, Natalie. My wife Sadie left this morning for a 2-week stay in Manchester with her brother and his family. And to ensure that she would definitely get to the station on time, I took Sadie there by car. When the train arrived, I helped her to her seat, said 'zay gezunt,' and got off the train."
"But what about the black marks on your face?" asks Natalie.
"Well, because the train had arrived on schedule," replies Hyman, "I was assured of 2 weeks of blissful peace. So as soon as I got off, I ran up to the front of the train and gave it a big 'thank-you' kush."

kush: kiss
zay gezunt: stay well, (often said when people part)
