President Franklin D. Roosevelt got tired of smiling that big smile and

saying the usual things at all those White House receptions. So, one evening

he decided to find out whether anyone was paying attention to what he was

saying. As each person came up to him with extended hand, he flashed that

big smile and said, “I murdered my grandmother this morning.” People would

automatically respond with comments such as “How lovely!” or “Just

continue with your great work.” Nobody was listening to what he was saying,

except one foreign diplomat. When the president said, “I murdered my

grandmother this morning, the diplomat replied softly, “I’m sure she had it

coming to her.”
