A young man of 18 years becomes a monk in a monastery that requires a vow of silence. He can only speak 2 words every 5 years. At the end of year 5 the head monk calls the kid in and says, "My boy you now can say 2 words." To which the kid replies, "food's terrible."

Five more years go by and the head monk says, "My boy you may now say 2 words." The boy says, "bed's hard."

At the end of the next 5 years the head monk calls the boy in and says, "You may now say 2 words." The kid says, "I quit."

The head monk replies, "I'm not suprised, you've been complaining ever since you got here."
