At one time in my life, I thought I had a handle on the meaning of the
word "service." "The act of doing things for other people."
Then I heard the terms:
Internal Revenue Service
Postal Service
Telephone Service
Civil Service
City/County Public Service
Customer Service
Service Stations
And I became confused about the word "service." This is not what I
>thought "service" meant.

Then today, I overheard two farmers talking and one of them mentioned
that he was having a bull over to "service" a few of his cows.
SHAZAM! It all came into perspective. Now I understand what all those
"service" agencies are doing to us.
