Sweet Justice!

Working the closing shift one night, I had a customer use one of those stale jokes. You know, the, "It didn't ring up, must be free", kind of joke.

Normally I would have fake laughed, but this was a stressful day and I was already irritated, so my response was simply, "That is so clever, I have NEVER heard that joke before".

They shut up quickly, I felt good about myself.

When I was new at my cashier job, this old bat zeroed in on me and said, "You must not feel well. You look like you don't." It hurt me terribly and I remembered her. when she back through my line months later and said THE SAME THING, I said, "I was thinking the same thing about you. I hope you feel better." Her face sunk and I felt great.

Yes thank you. I have heard that dumb joke way to many times. I applaude you!
