Where Are You From?
There was a boy Olivier who worked in the supermarket as a greengrocer. A middle aged big guy came into market and asked to buy half a head of leek.Olivier told him that they only sell whole heads of leeks,but the big guy replied that he did not need a whole head, only a half.
Olivier explained that he would have to ask the manager and so he walked into the back management office,found the manager and said, “There is a jackass out there who wants to buy only a half a head of leeks.”
As he finished saying this, he turned around to find the big scary-looking guy standing right behind him, so he quickly added, “and this gentleman wants to buy the other half”.
The manager approved the request and the scary-looking guy went on his way. Later on the manager said to Olivier, “You almost got yourself in a big trouble, but I must say I was impressed with the way you got out of it. You are ingenious and we like that kind of employee around here. Where are you from son?”
Olivier replied,“Argentina sir”.
“Oh, really? Why did you leave Argentina?”asked the manager. Olivier replied, “They’re all just whores and football players up there.”
“My wife is from Argentina!”manager shouted.
Olivier replied, “That’s incredible! Which team did she play for?”
