to open for you. Thank you for making a poor door happy".)"" which brings to
mind one of my favorite stories:

A friend was standing in front of a soda machine saying,
"You are a dumb looking button. You don't have much of a future, either.
People are going to be punching you all your life. Then you are going
to be replaced by a much better looking button."

I foolishly asked what he was doing.

He pointed to the notice on the front of the machine which said,

"Depress flavor button for no ice."
