My shortest job ever!

Amongst my fifty-five jobs in fifteen countries, there have been some pretty short-term ones. However, my most recent one as a Bunnings Greeter - a good find for any retiree - lasted less than a day.

About an hour 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.

As I had been instructed, I said, pleasantly, “Good morning and welcome to Bunnings”. I then said, “Nice children you have there. Are they twins?”

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

So I replied, “I'm neither blind nor stupid, Madam. I just couldn't believe someone shagged you twice. Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Bunnings”

My supervisor said that, despite my impressive cv, I probably wasn't cut out for this line of work.

P.S. Just kidding! I am still enjoying retirement and have plenty of unpaid work to do around "Riverbend". I just thought you might enjoy a bit of a laugh to start the day.
