A group of Americans was touring Ireland, and one of the women in the group was a real curmudgeon. She was constantly complaining: The bus seats were uncomfortable, the food was terrible, it’s too hot, it’s too cold, the accommodations were awful…

The group arrived at the famous blarney stone. “Good luck will follow you all your days if you kiss the blarney stone,” the tour guide said. “Unfortunately, it’s being cleaned today, and no one will be able to kiss it. Perhaps we can come back tomorrow.”

“We can’t be here tomorrow,” the nasty woman shouted, “we have some other boring tour to go on. I guess we won’t be able to kiss that stupid stone.”

“It is said that if you kiss someone that has kissed the stone, you’ll have the same good fortune,” the guide said.

“And I suppose you’ve kissed the stone?”

“No ma’am,” the frustrated guide said, “but I’ve sat on it.”
