Someone Needs A Sabbathical

| Working | December 24, 2014

(It is just before Hanukkah and my father goes into the neighborhood grocery store for candles. He finds the “Jewish Items” aisle but there are no candles, so he goes to the service desk.)

Father: “Excuse me, do you have Hanukkah candles?”

Employee: “Sure we do!”

Father: “Can you show me where?”

Employee: “Sure.” *leads him back to the aisle he’d been in*

Father: “I’m sorry, I don’t see them.”

Employee: “Right here! See, it says ‘shabbat’ right on the box!”

Father: “That’s, uh, not going to help.”

Employee: “You mean they’re not the same thing?”

Father: “This city’s what, forty percent Jewish?”
