Maybe this job really isn't for me

My  1 day of employment  

So, after landing my new job as a Wal-Mart  greeter,
a good find for many retirees, I lasted less  than a day...

About two hours into my first  day on the job a very loud,  

unattractive,  mean-acting woman walked into the store with her two kids,  yelling obscenities at them all the way through the  entrance.

I  said pleasantly, "Good morning and welcome to Wal-Mart.  

Nice children you have there. Are they twins?"

The  ugly woman stopped yelling long enough to say,
"Hell  no, they ain't twins. The oldest one's 9, and the other one's  7.   Why the hell would you think they're twins? Are you  blind, or stupid?"


So  I replied,
"I'm neither blind nor stupid, Ma'am, I  just couldn't believe someone slept with you twice. Have a good  day and thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart."

My  supervisor said I probably wasn't cut out for this line of work.
