I became confused when I heard the word "Service" used with these agencies:

Internal Revenue "Service"
US Postal "Service"
Telephone "Service"
Cable TV "Service"
Civil "Service"
State, City, County & Public "Service"

This is not what I thought "Service" meant.

But today, I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them said he had hired a bull to "service" a few cows. BAM!!! It all came into focus. Now, I understand what all those agencies are doing to us.

You are now as enlightened as I am.
