Now my boss Harold is the owner’s son . He has a degree in English Literature so the obvious place for a guy like that is a hardware store, right? You’re thinking the same thing I did when he showed up the first day!
Anyway the guy in the hand tool department went to lunch and I said I would fill in for him. While he was gone a very prim and proper looking women came up to the counter and asked about purchasing a file. Now hand files come in many different types and sizes. Wood files, metal files, flat, crosscut , double cut , triangle, square , rectangle , round, rat tail, you get the picture.
Now this women obvious didn’t know a thing about hand files but said “My husband would like me to purchase a file for his workman.” I said “We have many different files, what kind would you like and for what purpose?” Snobbishly she say’s "That is none of my concern, he said to ask for one of those Flat Bastard Files!.” Now being the joker that I am, I couldn’t pass this one up and said” We’re out of those Flat Bastards, but I got plenty of them Round Mutha Fuckers!”
Yup, you guessed it! That prick Harold laid me off for two months without pay!
Don’t anybody have a sense of humor anymore? Shit!
