Arriving home, a husband was met at the door by his sobbing wife, tearfully she explained, “It’s the Pharmacist, he was very rude to me this morning. I had to call and call before he would even answer the phone.”
Immediately the husband drove downtown to confront the pharmacist and demand an apology.
Before he could say more than a word or two, the Pharmacist told him, “Now, just a minute, listen to my side, this morningthe alarm failed to go off, I was late getting up, went without breakfast, hurried out to the car, realized I had locked the house with both house and car keys inside, had to break a window to get my keys.”
“Driving a little too fast, received a speeding ticket, then when 4 blocks from the shop, had a flat tyre.”
“When finally arriving at the shop, lots of people were waiting for me, opened the shop, started waiting on customers, all that time, phone was constantly ringing.”
“Had to open a bag of coins for the cash register drawer to make change, they spilled all over the floor, got down on my hands and knees to pick up the coins, the phone was still ringing. When I came up I cracked my head on the open cash drawer, which made me stagger back against a showcase with perfume bottles on it, half of them hit the floor and broke.”
“Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing, I finally got back to answer it, it was your wife, she wanted to know how to use a rectal thermometer.
Believe me mister, as God is my witness, all I did was tell her.”
