Keep Your Head
A young man was working in the produce section of a grocery store when a customer asked him for half a head of cabbage.
"Sir, we don't sell half heads of anything. "
"Well, I insist; 1 0nly want half a head. "
"I'll ask the manager. "
The young man walked to the manager's office and, not realizing that the customer had followed him, said to the manager,
"Sir, some asshole wants to buy just half a head of cabbage. "
Turning and noticing the customer, he quickly added,
"And this gentleman wants the other half. "
Later, the manager took the young man aside and said,
"That was quick thinking, young fellow. We can use bright lads like you. If I hear of a higher position opening up, I'll keep you in mind. "
Sure enough, a few weeks later the manager told the young man that an assistant manager's spot had become vacant in the company's store in Edmonton.
"Edmonton!" blurted out the young man. "Why, there's nothing in Edmonton but hookers and hockey playersi"
"Young man , my wife happens to come from Edmonton! "
"No kidding, sir; what posltion does she play?"
