Say good bye mom!
Just a little something to tickle your funnybone!
I was shopping and noticed a little old lady following me around.
I stopped, she stopped. Furthermore she kept staring at me.
She finally overtook me at the checkout, and she turned to me and said,
"I hope I haven't made you feel ill at ease; it's just that you look so much like my late daughter."
I answered, "That's okay."
"I know it's silly, bu t if you'd call out "Good bye, Mom" as I leave the store, it would make me feel so happy."
She then went through the checkout, and as she was on her w ay out of the store, I called out, "Goodbye, Mom."
The little old lady waved, and smiled back at me. Pleased that I had brought a little sunshine into someone's day, I went to pay for my groceries.
"That comes to $121.85," said the clerk. "How come so much .. I only bought 5 items.."
The clerk replied, "Yeah, but your Mother said you'd be paying for her things too."
