A woman couldn’t find her wallet at the check out so started pulling everything out of her handbag.
The shop assistant watched without comment as a packet of tissues, keys, comb, lipstick, notebook, pens and other bits and pieces piled up on the counter.
Then the shopper pulled out a television remote control.
“Why did you bring that to the supermarket? the shop assistant asked.
“My husband keeps saying he’ll take a turn at cleaning up the living room but never does. I figured this was the best way to motivate him to do it,” the shopper said.
