You Better Watch How You Behave in Public!

Real Estate Agent with Sabinske & Associates, Inc. (Albertville, St. Michael)

A woman was waiting in the checkout line at a shopping center. Her arms were laden with a mop and broom and other cleaning supplies. By her hard glances and deep sighs, it was obvious she was in hurry and not a happy camper about the slowness of the line.

When the cashier called for a price check on a box of soap, the woman remarked indignantly, "Well, I'll be lucky to get out of here and home before Christmas!"

"Don't worry, ma'am," replied the clerk. "With a good tail wind and that brand new broom you have there, you'll be home in no time."

The joke was good, and you have never posted one before to my knowledge.  But, Richard's comment was priceless!

Very funny Suzanne.  I used to work in the grocery industry and would have loved to say that to a few people.  But that was long long ago.

LOL!  That was cute!  But sometimes those comments are waranted when these check out people think that chatting about their social life amongst each other is more important than servicing the customers.

Sometimes a sharp rebuttle to some stupid remark is the best thing.
