Incident While Purchasing a Sympathy Card
Well my wife informed me someone she knew lost his mother the other day and she wanted to show the fellow and his father that she was sorry by giving them a home baked pumpkin pie and a cobbler. Included with those things was to be a sympathy card.
So she goes to the local grocery store and spies a card that she thinks would admirably achieve her purpose. She flips it over and sees $4.99. What?! That's just too much money. So she checks them all out.
She finds another one that is not bad and costs $1.99. She picked that one out and went to the checkout line. We know the girl who was running the checkout she chose (I was not with her). Frankly, she is very friendly and pleasant, but loud and rather direct. Ordinarily, that would be no problem.
But she blurts out boldly, "Wow, I didn't know we had a card THIS CHEAP!"
Can you imagine what went through my wife's mind? How she felt? Try E-M-B-A-R-R-A-S-S-E-D...
