Upon arriving home, a husband was met at the door
by his sobbing wife. Tearfully she explained, "It's the
druggist. He insulted me terribly this morning on the
phone. I had to call multiple times before he would even
answer the phone."
Immediately, the husband drove downtown to confront
the druggist and demand an apology.
Before he could say more than a word or two, the
druggist told him, "Now, just a minute, listen to my side
This morning the alarm failed to go off, so I was late
getting up.. I went without breakfast and hurried out to
the car, just to realize that I locked the house with both
house and car keys inside and had to break a window to
get my keys.
Then, driving a little too fast, I got a speeding ticket.
Later, when I was about three blocks from the store, I had
a flat tire.
When I finally got to the store there was a bunch of people
waiting for me to open up. I got the store opened and
started waiting on these people, and all the time the darn
phone was ringing off the hook."
He continued, "Then I had to break a roll of nickels against
the cash register drawer to make change, and they spilled all
over the floor. I had to get down on my hands and knees to
pick up the nickels and the phone was still ringing.
When I came up I cracked my head on the open cash drawer,
which made me stagger back against a showcase with a bunch
of perfume bottles on it. Half of them hit the floor and broke.
Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing with no let up, and I finally
got back to answer it. It was your wife. She wanted to know how
to use a rectal thermometer. And believe me mister, as God is
my witness, all I did was tell her!"
