The Blind Clerk
A woman goes into Wal-Mart to buy a rod and
reel. She doesn't know which one to get, so she just grabs one and goes over to the
register. There is a Wal-Mart associate standing there with dark shades on.She says,
"Excuse me, Sir ... can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?"He says,
"Ma'am, I'm blind, but if you will drop it on the counter I can tell you everything
you need to know about it from the sound that it makes.
She didn't believe him but dropped it on the counter anyway.He said, "That's a 6 foot
graphite rod with a Zebco 202 reel and 10 lb.test line... It's a good all around rod and
reel, and it's only $20.00."She says, "It is amazing that
you can tell all that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter. I think it's what
I'm looking for, so I'll take it."
He walks behind the counter to the register, she bends down to get her purse and
accidentally farts. At first she is embarrassed but then realizes that there is no way he
could tell it was her. Being blind, he certainly wouldn't know that she was the only
person around. He rings up the sale and says, "That will be $25.50." She says,
"But didn't you say it was only $20.00?" He says, "Yes ma'am, the rod and
reel is $20.00, the duck call is $3.00, and the catfish stink bait is $2.50....and thank
you for shopping at Wal-Mart."
