The Meaning of the the Word "Service"

  1. Subject: Meaning of the word service

    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
    Civil Service
    Service Stations
    Customer Service
    City/County Public Service

    And I became confused about the word "service." This is not what I thought "service" meant.

    Then one day, I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them mentioned that he was having a bull "service" a few of his cows.

    SHAZAM! It all came into perspective! Now I understand what all
    those "service" agencies are doing to us.
