Thinking On Your Feet
There was a boy who worked in the produce section of the
market. A man came in and asked to buy half a head of
lettuce. The boy told him that they only sold whole heads of
lettuce, but the man replied that he did not need a whole
head, but only a half head. The boy said he would go ask his
manager about the matter.
The boy walked into the back room and said, "There's some
jerk out there who wants to buy only a half a head of
lettuce." As he was finishing saying this he turned around
to find the man standing right behind him, so he added, "and
this gentleman wants to buy the other half."
The manager okayed the deal and the man went on his way.
Later the manager called on the boy and said, "You almost
got yourself in a lot of trouble earlier, but I must say I
was impressed with the way you got yourself out of it. You
think on your feet and we like that around here. Where are
you from son?"
The boy replied, "Canada sir."
"Oh really? Why did you leave Canada?" asked the manager.
The boy replied, "They're all just whores and hockey players
"Really," replied the manager, "My wife is from Canada!"
The boy replied, "No kidding! What team did she play for?
