Lesson 23

                                           Text A

                           Would You Like a Shave or a Haircut1?
    A poor farmer who had always lived in the country and had never visited a big town won a lot of money, so he decided2 that he could now afford a holiday in an excellent hotel by the sea.
    When lunch-time came on his first day there, he decided to go and eat in the restaurant of the hotel. The head waiter showed him to his table, took his order and went away. When he looked at the farmer again, he had a surprise! The farmer had tied his table napkin3 round his neck.
    The head waiter was very annoyed4 at this and immediately told one of the other waiters in the restaurant to go to the man and inform him, without being in any way insulting5, that people did not do such a thing in restaurants of that quality.
    The waiter went to the farmer and said in a friendly voice, "Good morning, sir. Would you like a shave, or a haircut?"
