A lady asked the grocery store worker if she could buy half a head of lettuce. The man said that she could not. But she really didn’t want to buy the whole head for just herself because she knew she wouldn’t eat it all and it would be wasted.
“Please ask your boss if I can buy half a head of lettuce” she asked. So he went into the back room where his boss was working, not realizing that she was following him. He said “Hey boss, some moron wants to know if she can buy half a head of lettuce.”
The boss’s eyebrows raised in surprise so much that the worker knew something was wrong. He turned slowly to see the customer behind him. There was an awkward silence for a few seconds and then he said “and this wonderful lady wants to buy the other half.”
