Arriving home, a husband was met by his sobbing wife and she tearfully explained, “The pharmacist insulted me this morning on the phone. I had to call multiple times before he would even answer the phone.”
The husband drove down to confront the pharmacist to demand an apology.
Before he could say more than a word or two, the pharmacist said “Now, just a minute… hear my side of it.”
“This morning the alarm failed to go off, so I was late.
Without breakfast I hurried out to the car, to realize I’d locked the house with house and car keys inside.
I had to break a window to get my keys.
Driving a little too fast, I got a speeding ticket.
About three streets from the store, I had a flat tire.
When I finally got to the store a bunch of people were waiting for me to open up.
I started waiting on these people, All the time the damn phone never stopped ringing.
Then I had to break open a roll of coins against the cash register drawer to give change, and they spilled all over the floor.
I had to get down on my hands and knees to pick up the money and 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 bottles of expensive perfumes on it. Half of them hit the floor and broke.
Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing with no let up, and I finally got to answer it.
It was your wife. She wanted to know how to use a rectal thermometer.
And believe me, Sir, as God is my witness, all I did was tell her!! ”
