Short Joke | We’re so polite.
British Grocery Shopping
1st Checkout Assistant: ‘Thank you for shopping with us. Today you have saved three pence by choosing us over our competitors.’
Me: ‘Did you include the price of the carrier bag in that?’
1st Checkout Assistant: *Presses bell and angrily whispers to 2nd shop assistant* *Turns back to me and sighs* ‘Thank you for shopping with us. Today you have lost money by choosing us over our competitors.’
2nd Shop Assistant: *Reaches over and slaps 1st checkout assistant around back of head.*
Me: ‘That’s frightfully honest of you, thank you so very much. See you next week.’ *Skips out*
