    At a small parish in rural New England there lived a priest, and
    several nuns.

    One day, one of the older nuns was noticing that the rugs in the
    church were beginning to fray. She went to the priest and told him
    "Father, I believe your rugs need to be replaced soon."

    The priest thanked her for bringing it to his attention, and told her
    that he thought that she had been there long enough to refer to church
    property as "our" not "your."

    Several days later, the same nun noticed that the hedge needed to be
    trimmed. She again went to the priest and told him "Father, I've
    noticed that your... I mean our hedge needs to be trimmed."

    The priest thanked her for again bringing something to his attention
    and this time asked her if she had seen his watch that had gone missing.

    She assured him she would look for it. Another few days passed, and
    the parish received word that the bishop would be coming for a visit. The
    whole parish was in a uproar of cleaning, etc.

    On the day the bishop arrived, the same nun came down the front stairs
    yelling "Father, Father, I found your watch!!"

    The bishop said, "How wonderful my child."

    After saying hello to the bishop, the nun turned to the priest and
    said "Why yes, Father, I found it under OUR bed."
