An old French lady had a small shop in her village for years until one day a huge corporate supermarket set up across the road from her little shop:
They put up signs advertising their prices, including one that said: Butter – 10 euros.
In response, the old lady added a sign to her own window: Butter – 9 euros.
The next day, the big supermarket had a new sign: Butter – 8 euros.
Indeed, the day after the lady’s sign said: Butter – 7 euros.
This went on for a while until eventually one of the lady’s customers pointed to the sign and said.
“Ma’am, you can’t keep your prices that low for long. These big companies can use their buying power to sell products cheaper, but a little store like yours can never compete.”
In response, the old lady bent forward conspiratorially and muttered.
“Monsieur, I don’t even sell butter.”
Hope this joke will make you smile! Have a nice day!
Smart older lady calls a hospital to check on a patient.
A sweet old lady telephoned St. Joseph’s Hospital. She asked, “Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?”
The operator said, “I can. What are the name and room number?”
The old lady said, “Norma Findlay, room 302.”
The operator replied, “Let me place you on hold while I check with her nurse.”
After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said, “Oh, I have good news, her nurse just told me that Norma is doing very well. Her blood pressure is fine, her blood work just came back as normal, and her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged on Tuesday.”
The old lady said, “Thank you. That’s wonderful! I was so worried! God bless you!”
The operator replied, “You’re welcome. Is Norma your daughter?”
The grandmother said, “No, I’m Norma Findlay in 302. No one ever tells me sh*t.”
Ha! That’s an excellent example of taking matters into your own hands!
Hope this funny story will make you smile! Have a nice day!!
