To Be A Monk
A young man goes to the Monastery to inquire about becoming a monk. The head monk says "Our requirements are very difficult and the one requirement most men have trouble with is the Vow of Silence. You are only allowed to speak two words every ten years".
The young man says that he would still like to give it a try.
Ten years go by and he goes before the head monk and says "Food, cold".
Ten more years go by and he goes to the head monk and says "Bed, hard".
After ten more years go by, he decides he's had enough. He goes before the head monk and says "I quit ". The head monk says, "Well, it doesn't surprise me. You've done nothing but complain ever since you've been here".
