Saturday’s smiles

The manager of the garden centre overheard one of her sales assistants talking to a customer.

‘No, we haven’t had any in ages,’ said the assistant. ‘And I don’t know when we’ll be getting any more.’

The customer left and the manager walked over to her assistant and said, ‘Never tell a customer we can’t get them something, ‘Whatever they want we can always get it on order and deliver it. Do you understand?’

The assistant nodded though she didn’t look confident.

‘So what did the customer want?’ asked the manager.

‘Rain,’ the assistant replied.

    It seems a mathematics teacher was arrested at Heathrow Airport trying to board a plane with a ruler, protractor, set square and compass

    He was eventually charged with carrying instruments of math instruction
