Worth His Hire

Worth His Hire.

A man visiting an English country town went to the local barber for a shave. The barber made several slips with his razor, and pasted a small piece of paper over the cut to stop the bleeding. When the operation was over the victim handed the man half-acrown.

“Keep the change, barber,” he said. “It's worth half-a-crown to be shaved by so versatile an artist. Why, you're a barber, butcher and paperhanger all in one.”
