The new priest is nervous about hearing confessions, so he asks the older priest to sit in on his sessions. The new priest hears a couple of confessions, then the old priest asks him to step out of the confessional for a few suggestions.
The old priest suggests, "Cross you arms over your chest, and rub your chin with one hand." The new priest tries this.
The old priest suggests, "Try saying things like, 'I see, yes, go on', and "I understand. How did you feel about that?" The new priest says those things.
The old priest says, "Now, don't you think that's a little better than slapping your knee and saying 'No shit?!? What happened next?"
Once, there was a man who was so upset by his past deeds that he decided to visit a church and confess all of his sins. When he arrived at the church, he walked to the confession area and spoke to the pastor.
"Father, I am sinful."
"Yes, son, just tell me what have you done, the Lord will forgive you."
"Father, I have a steady relationship with my girlfriend, it's been 3 years and nothing serious ever happened between us. Yesterday, I visited her house, nobody was at home except for her sister. We were alone and I slept with her."
"That's bad my boy, fortunately you realize your mistake."
"Father, last week I went to my grilfriend's office to look for her, but nobody was around except for one of her colleagues, so I slept with her too."
"That's not very good of you."
"Father, last month, I went to her uncle's house to look for her, nobody was around except for her auntie, and I slept with her too."
"Father? ... Father?"
Suddenly this guy realized that there was no response from the Father, he walked over and discovered that the Pastor was not there. So he began searching for him.
"Father? Where are you?"
He searched high and low, and finally he found him hiding under the table behind the piano.
"Father, why are you hiding here?"
"Sorry son, suddenly I remembered there is nobody around here except me."
Two men Tom and Paul are chatting as they work.
Tom says: "I've been attending night classes for 5 months now and I have an exam next week."
Tom: "For example, do you know who is Graham Bell?"
Tom: "He's the inventor of the phone in 1876. If you take night courses you would know this."
The next day, the same discussion took place.
Tom: "Do you know who Alexander Dumas is?"
Tom: "He's the author of 'The 3 Musketeers'! If you take night courses, you would know this."
The next day, once again:
Tom: "And do you know who Jean Jacques Rousseau is?"
Tom: "He's the author of 'Confessions', if you take night courses, you would know this."
This time, Paul got irritated and said: "And you, do you know who John Smith is?"
Paul: "He's the guy roaming with your wife! If you stop night courses, you would know!"
