Service to me means:
    1. Assistance; help: was of great service to him during his illness.
    2. An act of assistance or benefit; a favor: My friend did me a service in fixing the door.
    1. Active devotion to God, as through good works or prayer.
    2. A religious rite.

So I'm a little confused when I hear these terms with reference to the
word 'service'.

Internal Revenue 'Service'

U.S. Postal 'Service'

Telephone 'Service'

Cable 'Service'

State, City & County Public 'Service' Customer 'Service'

This is not what I thought 'service' meant. But when I overheard
two farmers talking, and one of them said he had hired a bull to
'service' a few cows. BAM!!! It all came into focus. Now I
understand what all those 'service' agencies are doing to us.

Now you're are as enlightened as I am.

Very nice combo of intellectual ponderings and jabs to our fasco-socio society.
