Papi quits the synagogue

A pious man, Poppa Gringo who had reached the age of 80 suddenly stopped going to temple. Alarmed by the old fellow’s absence after so many years of faithful attendance the Rabbi went to see him.

He found him in excellent health, so the Rabbi asked, “How come after all these years we don’t see you at services anymore?”

Poppa looked around and lowered his voice. “I’ll tell you, Rabbi,” he whispered.

“When I got to be 60, I expected God to take me any day. But then I got to be 65, then 70, then 80. So I figured that God is very busy and must’ve forgotten about me.”

“So?” the Rabbi asked indignantly.

“So I don’t want to remind him!”
