becca's unintentional joke of the week

On Thursday, I went into my local hardware store to buy some screws. I went up to the counter and told the guy that I'd like a box of screws, and his response to me is, "all our screws are loose!"....and so I responded with, "haha, i think we all have a few screws loose here if you know what i mean!". bad-um-bum......


and then the hardware store guy says,"we only sell our screws individually". feeling like the loony tune the guy obviously thought i was - i bought three screws.

believe it or not, i actually tried to joke with him again. when he told me that my purchase would be $.20 total, i said something along the lines of, "you drive a hard bargain buddy!".

deafening silence.

word to the wise: hardware stores and improvisational comedy routines do not mix.....that's the nuts and bolts of it. am i right people? anybody? nothing? tough crowd!
