This week my plan was to discuss shopping store etiquette. As I was searching for the funnies to accompany such a theme I made a shocking discovery. I will warn you - the pictures you are about to see may be disturbing.
Less than a year ago we said good-bye to our very close friend the "EasyCEU logo guy." For those of you who are new to Friday Funnies or those of you whose memory may be failing here is a picture of our dear friend that was in fact the face of EasyCEU for many years.
We've lost contact with logo guy since incorporating our new, more modern logo. During a recent google search I found him. Check out his picture and his plea for help below. Yes, we are in a recession and poor logo guy has fallen victum to this terrible state affairs. We're so sorry logo guy -
P.S. Here is a funny Video about grocery store spacers.
Happy Friday, Wendy Finch Wendy@EasyCEU.com
Shopping with Mom...
A young man was walking through a supermarket to pick up a few things when he noticed an old lady following him around. Thinking nothing of it, he ignored her and continued on. Finally he went to the checkout line, but she got in front of him.
"Pardon me," she said, "I'm sorry if my staring at you has made you feel uncomfortable. It's just that you look just like my son, who just died recently."
"I'm very sorry," replied the young man, "is there anything I can do for you?"
"Yes," she said, "As I'm leaving, can you say 'Good bye, Mother!' ? It would make me feel so much better."
"Sure," answered the young man.
As the old woman was leaving, he called out, "Goodbye, Mother!"
As he stepped up to the checkout counter, he saw that his total was $127.50. "How can that be?" he asked, "I only purchased a few things!"
"Your mother said that you would pay for her," said the clerk. Surviving the Grocery Store with Children... A man observed a woman in the grocery store with a three year old girl in her basket. As they passed the cookie section, the child asked for cookies and her mother told her "no." The little girl immediately began to whine and fuss, and the mother said quietly, "Now Ellen, we just have half of the aisles left to go through; don't be upset. It won't be long."
He passed the Mother again in the candy aisle. Of course, the little girl began to shout for candy. When she was told she couldn't have any, she began to cry. The mother said, "There, there, Ellen, don't cry. Only two more aisles to go, and then we'll be checking out."
The man again happened to be behind the pair at the check-out, where the little girl immediately began to clamor for gum and burst into a terrible tantrum upon discovering there would be no gum purchased today. The mother patiently said, "Ellen, we'll be through this check out stand in five minutes, and then you can go home and have a nice nap."
The man followed them out to the parking lot and stopped the woman to compliment her. "I couldn't help noticing how patient you were with little Ellen..."
The mother broke in, "My little girl's name is Tammy... I'm Ellen."
Logo guy needs food!
This Week's Quote...
"I was in the grocery store. I saw a sign that said "pet supplies." So I did. Then I went outside and saw a sign that said "compact cars."
