Silly Sunday

Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

Goodbye Mom:

A guy shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following him around. If he stopped, she stopped. Furthermore she kept staring at him.

She finally overtook him at the checkout, and she turned to him and said, “I hope I haven’t made you feel ill at ease; it’s just that you look so much like my late son.”

He answered, “That’s okay.”

“I know it’s silly, but if you’d call out “Goodbye, Mom” as I leave the store, it would make me feel so happy.”

She then went through the checkout … and as she was on her way out of the store, the man called out, “Goodbye, Mother.” The little old lady waved and smiled back at him.

Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine into someone’s day, he went to pay for his groceries.

“That comes to $121.85,” said the clerk.

“How come so much? I only bought 5 items.”

The clerk replied, “Yeah, but your Mother said you’d pay for her things, too.”

    Clever old lady, but totally not cool. Thanks for the laugh.

    • August 9, 2015 at 8:49 am

      No not cool at all, but funny. πŸ™‚

  6. August 9, 2015 at 4:18 am

    That sounds like a good move. I don't think I have the nerve to try that. I would end up getting caught. Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a great day.

    • August 9, 2015 at 8:50 am

      I know I wouldn't try this because it's not a nice thing to do. πŸ™‚

  7. August 9, 2015 at 4:35 am

    Ouch! Heeheehee!

    • August 9, 2015 at 8:50 am

      Yep, thank goodness it didn't cost more. πŸ™‚

    That's another store and town to which the old lady can't return. She was devious but thought small.

    • August 9, 2015 at 8:51 am

      She thought very small. Most crooks do. πŸ™‚

  10. August 9, 2015 at 7:54 am

    The world is so different now. In this case it doesn't pay to be kind. So sad.

    • August 9, 2015 at 8:51 am

      True Nancy, but this was for fun. It's not for real. πŸ™‚

  11. August 9, 2015 at 8:05 am

    Hillary Clinton has been pulling this scheme off for Million$ in Clinton Cash over 40 years.

    • August 9, 2015 at 8:52 am

      Yep, and she's one of the biggest crooks I know. πŸ™‚

  12. August 9, 2015 at 8:41 am

    That was a jaw dropper! Wouldn't surprise me if someone actually tried it somewhere.

    • August 9, 2015 at 8:52 am

      Probably has been done a time or two. πŸ™‚

  13. August 9, 2015 at 10:00 am

  14. August 9, 2015 at 12:33 pm

    Uh-oh…this joke may give little old lady criminals some good ideas!

    • August 10, 2015 at 8:27 am

      Probably, but criminals are always thinking of their next mark. πŸ™‚

  15. August 9, 2015 at 4:23 pm

      And she sure has hers. πŸ™‚

  20. August 10, 2015 at 3:33 pm

      Yep, and she got free groceries too. πŸ™‚

  21. August 10, 2015 at 7:28 pm

    I just read this out loud to Michelle & we both cracked up. Must be one of the funniest jokes I've heard in a long time. Now I know to beware of little old ladies in supermarkets. And to never go shopping with my dear ol' Mum

    • August 11, 2015 at 8:23 am

      Yep, it's way cheaper that way. πŸ™‚

  22. August 11, 2015 at 9:18 pm
