The Grocery Store

A young man was shopping for a few items in the grocery store when he noticed an elderly lady following him around.

He thought nothing of it, ignored her and carried on shopping, but he couldn’t help but notice that whichever aisle he was in, she was there close behind him.

Finally, having found the handful of items that he wanted, he went to the checkout, but the elderly lady managed to get in front of him.

“I hope you will excuse me”, she said. “I’m sorry if my staring at you has made you feel uncomfortable. It’s that you look just like my son, who just died recently”.

“I’m very sorry”, the young man replied, feeling sorry for the elderly lady. “Is there anything I can do for you?”

“There is one thing”, she said. “As I’m leaving, could you say ‘Good bye, Mother’? It would make me feel so much better”.

So the young man agreed and as the elderly lady was leaving the grocery store, he called out, “Goodbye, Mother!”

He put his few purchases on the conveyor belt and as he stepped up to pay for them, he saw that his total was over $150.

“How can that be?” he asked the woman on the checkout, “I only purchased a few things!”

“Your mother said that you would pay for her,” the woman replied.

Whoever said old people aren’t crafty!
