A woman decided to join a Monastery of Silence.
The priest welcomes her and says, “You can only speak when I say you can.”
Five years pass before the priest comes to her and says, “Dear Lady, you’ve been with us for five years and you are now allowed to say two words.”
The woman says “Hard bed.”
The priest apologizes and says he will get her a better, softer bed.
Another five years pass and once again the priest tells the woman that she can say another two words.
She says, “Cold food.”
The priest once again apologizes and says that he will start making better, warmer food.
Another five years pass, once again the priest tells the woman that she can say two words.
“I quit,” the woman says.
“It’s probably best,” says the priest, “you’ve done nothing but bitch ever since you came here.”
