November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

Wait In Line, Parish The Thought

| Tampa, FL, USA | Top

(A customer comes up to the front of a long checkout line.)

Me: “Ma’am, you have to go to the back of the line or go to another line to purchase. There is already a line here.”

Customer: “I have to checkout now! I have to go to church in 5 minutes!”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but you have to wait. You could also come back and get your toy after your service.”

Customer: “I have to checkout now! I bet you’re just some heathen who wants me to miss church!”

(A customer who is also a priest comes up to the front.)

Priest: “Ma’am, going to church will not make you a better Christian. Shouting something as hateful as ‘heathen’ to this sweet lady certainly won’t help either.”

Customer: “She won’t check me out so I can go to church! She obviously is not Christian.”

Priest: “Ma’am, just please go to the back of the line, or leave. Nobody wants to hear your hateful comments to such a sweet woman. She might not be Christian, but she sure gives a lot more respect to people than you do.”

Customer: *huffs* “Fine! But when God sends his fire upon both of you, you’ll be sorry!”
