Humor at work

I received this as an email last week and thought it was funny, but true!  I wanted to share with all!

After receiving a beautiful haircut, a doctor asks the barber, "How much do I owe you?" "Oh, I never charge a doctor," the barber replies. "You all do such good, important work." The next morning, the barber arrives at his shop and finds a thank you note and a bottle of wine on his doorstep from the doctor.
Later that day, a police officer walks into the same barbershop. After a beautiful haircut, the police office asks the barber, "How much do I owe you?" "Oh, I never charge a police officer," the barber replies. "You all do such good, important work." The next morning, the barber arrives at his shop and finds a thank you note and a box of candy on his doorstep from the police officer.
Later that day, a youth minister walks into the same barbershop. After a beautiful haircut, the youth minister asks the barber, "How much do I owe you?" "Oh, I never charge people in ministry," the barber replies. "You all do such good, important work." The next morning, the barber arrives at his shop and finds twelve youth ministers on his doorstep.
