A guy and his wife were cleaning out the attic one day when he came across a ticket from the local shoe repair shop. The date stamped on the ticket showed that it was over 11 years old. They both laughed and tried to remember which of them might have forgotten to pick up a pair of shoes over a decade ago.
"Do you think the shoes will still be at the shop?" the man asked.
"Not very likely," his wife said.
"It's worth a try," he said, pocketing the ticket. He went downstairs, hopped in the car and drove to the shoe shop. With a straight face, he handed the ticket to the man behind the counter. With a face just as straight, the man said, "Just a minute. I'll have to look for these."
He disappeared into a dark corner at the back of the shop. Two minutes later, the man called out, "Here they are!"
"No kidding," the customer called back. "That's terrific! Who would have thought they'd still be here after all this time?"
The man came back to the counter, empty handed. "They'll be ready on Thursday," he said calmly.
The candidate was interviewing for a job at a phone answer center and was asked to make a sentence using the words Yellow, Pink, and Green.
After thinking about it for a couple of minutes, the reply was, "When the phone goes GREEN, GREEN, GREEN, I PINK up the phone and say YELLOW!"
She got the job.
As a buddy and I were walking down the street near the middle of town we decided to turn down a side street we've never traveled on before. Walking past what appeared to be a retail establishment, all we heard was swearing and cursing coming from within.
And then, following that, we saw two very well dressed gentlemen walking out while continuing their obscenities as they left the store.
"What in the world is going on here?" I asked my friend.
"I think I read about this place," he replied. "We just walked past the Men's Swearhouse!"
