with a little help from patrick

Yesterday at the Office Supply Superstore I ran into an elderly couple who seemed to be having a generally bad day. I walked up to them in the furnitutre pad and cheerily queried, “Can I help you with anything?”

Nice Old Lady: “We need to measure some of these desks.”

Usually I would point out that the measurements are clearly listed next to the price, but it didn’t seem like that was something she’d want to hear, and so I was pondering my options when I noticed the Nice Old Lady was pointing at my crotch.

Nice Old Lady: “Is that a tape measure in your pocket?”

Me: “No, but Thank You!”

It was a good day at work.

  7. i hope you didn’t give her a heart attack. the older generation (unless they’re from the 60s) tends to have problems with giving tape measures too much publicity.

    p.s. I’m taking a survey. What do the words “Bomb Ass Cush” mean to you?
