Clear Instructions

Post date: Aug 12, 2013 11:57:58 AM

There was a bit of confusion at the supermarket when it was turn for the old fellow to pay for his purchases. The cashier said,

"Strip down, facing me." Making a mental note to complain to his M.P about the excessive security, he did just as she had instructed.

When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, he found out that she was referring to his credit card. After being asked to shop elsewhere in the future, he suggested that their supermarket needed to make their instructions a little clearer as he had only done as he was asked.
