A boy got a new job in the produce section of the supermarket.
A man came in and asked to buy half a head of lettuce. The boy told him that they only sold whole heads of lettuce, but the man insisted that he did not need a whole head, only half.
The boy explained that he would have to ask the manager and so he walked into the back room and said, "There is some idiot out there who wants to buy only a half a head of lettuce." As he finished saying this, he turned around to find the man standing right behind him, so he quickly added, "And this fine gentleman wants to buy the other half." The manager okays the request and the man went on his way.
Later on, the manager said to the boy, "You almost got yourself into a lot of trouble earlier, but I must say I was impressed with the way you got out of it. You think on your feet, and I like that! Where are you from, son?"
"Oh, really? Why did you leave Georgia?"
"There are only hookers and football players down there."
"My wife is from Georgia!" exclaimed the manager.
The boy instantly replied, "Really! What team did she play for?"
