A customer at a supermarket asked Bob, the assistant produce manager, if he could buy half a cucumber.
Bob said we don't sell a half of a cucumber, you have to buy the whole cucumber.
The customer was insistent about the cucumber and was becoming very loud.
Bob told the customer he would ask the store manager.
Bob went to the manager and told him: "There is a loud mouth idiot over in produce who wants 1/2 a cucumber".
Unknown to Bob the customer had followed him and was standing right behind him. When Bob realized this, he quickly added "Oh and this fine gentleman would like to buy the other 1/2".
In order to satisfy the customer the manager told Bob to sell him half the cucumber.
Later the boss told Bob he was very impressed by his fast thinking. He asked Bob if he was interested in the manager's position at their store in Saskatchewan.
Bob replied, "Saskatchewan?" "Are you kidding me, the only thing in Saskatchewan are hockey players and fat ugly women."
To which the boss said: "Oh really? My wife comes from Saskatchewan.."
Bob quickly replied, "Is that so? What position does she play?"
