This elderly couple were sitting in their tiny cold apartment when the husband said, "Doris, we are in bad shape. Inflation has completely eaten up our Social Security check. The next one isn't due for a week and we've got no money left for food."
"Well, just what can we do??" she asked.
"Well, gosh," he said. "I just hate to see you do this but it's the only way. You're going to have to go out and hustle."
"Me??" she said. "At my ripe old age of seventy-five?"
"Yes, it's the only way," he answered. "I can't do anything myself, why with my debilitating arthritis and everything."
Resigned to the situation, the wife hobbled out with her walking cane into the warm night. She came staggering in the next morning.
"How did you do?" asked the husband.
"Here," she said. "I've got four dollars and ten cents."
"Four dollars and ten cents?" he said. "Heck, who gave you ten cents to have sex with him?!?"
"Everybody," she replied.
