Working at the post office…

I’m used to dealing with a moody public.

So, when one irate customer stormed my desk,

I responded in my calmest voice,

“What’s the trouble?”

“I went out this morning,” she began,

“and when I came home, I found a card saying the mailman tried to deliver a package, but no one was home.

… I’ll have you know, my husband was in all morning! He never heard a thing!”

After apologizing, I got her parcel.

“Oh good!” she gushed. “We’ve been waiting for this for ages!”

“What is it?” I asked.


“My husband’s new hearing aid.”
