06/05/19 Grif.Net – Shoe Repair

Arnold and his wife were cleaning out the “junk drawer” in =
the kitchen one day when he came across a ticket from the local shoe =
repair shop. The date stamped on the ticket showed that it was over =
eleven years old.

 

They both laughed and tried to remember which of them might have =
forgotten to pick up a pair of shoes over a decade ago.  “Do =
you think the shoes will still be in the shop?” Arnold asked. =

 

“Not very likely,” his wife said.

 

“Well, it’s worth a try”, so pocketing the ticket he drove =
to the store and with a straight face, he handed the ticket to the man =
behind the counter.

 

With a face just as straight, the man said, “Just a minute. I’ll =
have to look for these.” He disappeared into a dark corner at the =
back of the shop. Two minutes later, the man called out, “Here =
they are!”

 

“No kidding?” Arnold called back. “That’s terrific! =
Who would have thought they’d still be here after all this time.” =

 

The man came back to the counter, empty-handed, and said calmly, =
“They’ll be ready Thursday.”
