...from Reader’s Digest Online:
Halfway through a romantic dinner, my husband smiled and said, “You look so beautiful under these lights.” I was falling in love all over again when he added, “We gotta get some of these lights.”
My sister worked at the ticket booth for a wildlife drive-through park. One day a woman drove up to the booth in a convertible. “I’m sorry, ma’am,” my sister said, “but the bears will destroy the top of your car if you drive it through the park. Would you like to use one of the junk cars we keep here for these situations?”
“A junk car?” the woman said reluctantly. “How about if I just put the top down?”
The milk shake machine at the fast-food restaurant I manage was broken, so I had an assistant post a sign to that effect on the drive-through speaker. A short time later, a customer pulled up to the speaker.
“May I take your order?” I asked.
Crash, boom, bang! came the response.
I asked the customer to pull around. “Were you pounding on the speaker?” I asked the driver.
“Yes, I was,” she admitted.
“Why would you do that?”
“Because the sign on the speaker said ‘Shake Machine Broken.’ ”
And i really like this one:
My new credit card arrived in the mail with a large sticker on it, giving the phone number to activate the card. I called the number and got one option: “press one” to activate the credit card. That led me to a live person, who answered with her first name and the title “credit card activator.” As I got ready to give her the necessary information, she interrupted me, asking, “How can I help you?”
