100 Words, 100 Days: Day 7. On Sense of Humour Failure.

This guy came into the pub this morning and asked me a question I’ve been dying to answer in a certain way.

“Excuse me, bud, do you serve a sandwich?”

To which I reply, “As long as it’s over 18-years-old and has some sort of ID, I’ll serve anyone and anything.”

To which he replies, “Are you trying to be smart?”

To which I reply, “I don’t have to try.”

It would be nice if people, when they’re leaving their house or flat, could bring a sense of humour with them. It’s as valuable to life as food and water.

  1. Clever, sir, I’d have laughed and then probably have tried to set you up again.

  2. A fellow wiseacre, I see. I like that. I like that a lot.
    We owned a small pool room for several years. I loved messing with customers in this manner. A young man came in wearing a T shirt with the message “I’m invisible”. When he asked for a Coke, I ignored him. He didn’t get it. After several attempts with the same result he turned to leave.
    I stopped him and explained: You’re wearing a shirt that says “I’m Invisible.”
    He laughed and said: I get it. Can I get a Coke?
    I ignored him.
    He didn’t get it.

  3. In the pool room I had a display called “Your Daily Dose”. It was little more than an excuse for me to post wiseass remarks and then wait for reactions from my customers. One Dose read: “Be alert. The world needs more lerts”. A young man came in, read it and said: What’s a lert? I said: You don’t have to worry about it. He said: Cool!

  4. Today, as well, another guy comes in and asks for a toasted sandwich. We don’t have a toaster (shame on us), so I said we’d serve up a plain sandwich. He asked what a plain sandwich was. I said it was one that’s not toasted.

    He didn’t get it either.

  5. Sometimes it is just TOO easy!

  6. It’s a mistake to take life too seriously . . . we never get out of it alive.
    Even if we are a lert. 😉

  7. I would have laughed.

  8. well when a man walks INTO a bar…you gotta laugh:)
