A woman walked up to him and asked,” Excuse me, but would it be possible for me to buy one-half of a head of lettuce?”
“I’m not sure,” Mike responded,”Let me check with the boss.”
He walked to the back of the store, entered the storeroom and told his boss, “ You’re not going to believe this but some crazy old woman wants to buy one-half of a head of lettuce.”
The expression on the boss’s face told Mike something was terribly wrong. He slowly turned around to see that the woman had followed him and heard everything.
He immediately knew his job was in serious jeopardy and with a vision of seeing his last paycheck flying away, he continued,”and Boss this nice, young lady wants to buy the other half.”
