Presence of Mind

In a shop a man asked for 1/2 kg of butter

The salesperson, a young boy, said that only 1kg packs were available in the shop, but the customer insisted on buying only 1/2 kg.

So the boy went inside to the manager’s room and said “An idiot outside wants to buy only 1/2 kg of butter”.

To his surprise, the customer was standing behind him. So the boy added immediately, “And this gentleman wants to buy the other half !!!!!!”.

After the customer left, the manager said “You have saved your position by being clever enough at the right time.

Where do you come from? To this the boy said, “I come from Mexico. The place consists of only prostitutes and football players !!!!!”.

The manager replied coldly, “My wife is also from Mexico”.

To this the boy asked excitedly, “Oh yeah? Which team does she play for?

Irritation, Aggravation & Frustration

A boy asks his father to explain the differences among irritation, aggravation, and frustration.

Dad picks up the phone and dials a number at random. When the phone is answered he asks, “Can I speak to Srikant , please?”

“No! There’s no one called Srikant here.” The person hangs up.

“That’s irritation,” says Dad.

He picks up the phone again, dials the same number and asks for Srikant a second time.

“No, there’s no one here called Srikant . Go away. Don’t call again”

“That’s aggravation.”

“Then what’s ‘frustration’?” asks his son.

The father picks up the phone and dials a third time:

“Hello, this is Srikant. Have I received any phone calls?”
