Quick Thinking

A man walked into the produce section of his local supermarket, and asked to buy half a head of lettuce. The boy working in that department told him that they only sold whole heads of lettuce. The man was insistent that the boy ask his manager about the matter.

Walking into the back room, the boy approached the manager. "Some old ba$tard wants to buy half a head of lettuce", he said.

As he finished his sentence, he turned to find the man standing right behind him, so he quickly added," and this gentleman kindly offered to buy the other half."

The manager approved the deal, and the man went on his way.

Later the manager called the boy to his office.

"Although I can't condone the way you referred to that customer earlier, I was impressed with the way you got yourself out of that situation. We like people who think on their feet here. Where are you from son?"

"New Zealand, sir," the boy replied.

"Why did you leave New Zealand?" the manager asked.

"Sir, there's nothing but wh0res and rugby players there,"the boy replied.

"Really?" replied the manager "My wife is from New Zealand!"

"Really??" replied the boy. "What team did she play for?"
