The Harried Pharmacist

Upon arriving home, a husband was met at the

door by his sobbing wife. Tearfully she explained,

"It's the pharmacist. He insulted me terribly

this morning on the phone."

Immediately the husband drove downtown to confront

the phamacist and demand an apology. Before he

could say more than a few words, the druggist

told him, "Now, just a minute, please listen

to my side of it...

This morning the alarm failed to go off, so

I was late getting up. I went without breakfast

and hurried out to the car, just to realize that

I locked the house with both house and car keys

inside. I had to break a window to get my keys.

Then, driving a little too fast, I got a speeding


Later, about three blocks from the store, I

had a flat tire. When I got to the store there

was a bunch of people waiting for me to open

up. I opened and started waiting on these people,

and all the time the darn phone was ringing off

the hook."

He continued, "Then I had to break a roll of

nickels against the cash register drawer to make

change, and they spilled all over the floor.

I got down on my hands and knees to pick up the

nickels; the phone was still ringing. When I

came up I cracked my head on the open cash drawer,

which made me stagger back against a showcase

with bunch of perfume bottles on it...all of

them hit the floor and broke.

Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing with

no let up, and I finally got to answer it. It

was your wife. She wanted to know how to use

a rectal thermometer...and, honest mister, all

I did was tell her!"
