The meaning of "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:
a. Internal Revenue Service
b. Postal Service
c. Civil Service
d. Public Service
e. Service Stations
f. Customer 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 over to "service" a few of his cows.

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