In Need of Rain

I used to be a manager at a toy store. A few years back, during the height of the Furby craze, I overheard one of my cashiers say to a customer, “We haven’t had any for awhile and I doubt we’ll be getting any soon.”

I quickly assured the customer that we would have a shipment in next week. After she left, I read the cashier the riot act. “Never tell a customer we’re out of anything. Tell them we’ll have it next week. Now, was she looking for a Furby?”


“Well, what was it she said she wanted?”



Season Tickets

A wife reading the newspaper to her husband said, “There’s a classified ad in here where a guy is offering to swap his wife for a season ticket to the stadium.”


“Would you swap me for a season ticket?”

“Absolutely not.”

“How sweet!”

“Season’s more than half over.”

“Fasten Your Seat Belts”

Flying to Los Angeles from San Francisco the other day, a passenger noticed that the “Fasten Seat Belts” sign was kept lit during the whole journey although the flight was a particularly smooth one. Just before landing, he asked the stewardess about it.

“Well,” she explained, “up front there are 17 University of California girls going to Los Angeles for the weekend. In back, there are 25 Coast Guard enlistees. What would you do?”
