Sam and George went to the bank to cash their paychecks. After Sam cashed his check, George handed the young teller his check. The teller gave him his cash and George stepped away from the window, counted his change, and went back to the cashier, saying, “Hey, you gave me the wrong change.”
The cashier replied, “Sir, you stepped away from the counter. There’s nothing I can do about it now.”
George shrugged his shoulders and joined Sam, who said, “She’s got some nerve. You should complain to the manager.”
“Oh, no,” George said. “I just wanted to tell her that I thought she’d like to know she gave me ten dollars too much.”
When my wife and I arrived at a car dealership to pick up our car after a service, we were told the keys had been locked in it.
We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver’s side door.
As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked.
‘Hey,’ I announced to the technician, ‘its open!’
His reply, ‘I know. I already did that side.’
I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked,
‘Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?’
To which I replied, ‘If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?’
He smiled knowingly and nodded, ‘That’s why we ask.’
