Wife: “So, you’re telling me that this store doesn’t have that promotion?”

Employee: “No, I’m sorry. We’re privately owned, so we’re not carrying out the promotion.”

Wife: “Well, you should have signs here telling me that!”

Employee: “Yeah, I’m sorry…”

Wife: *walks towards the exit while her husband slowly follows her behind him* “This is the seventh store I’ve been to that doesn’t have the promotion. Liars. They’re all LIARS! Just like OBAMA! He’s a LIAR! OBAMA! LIAR!”

Husband: *looks at me and shrugs, embarrassed*
