Mere paas maa hai!

Walking through a supermarket, a young man noticed an old lady following him around. He ignored her for a while, but when he got to the checkout line, she got in front of him.

“Pardon me,” she said. “I’m sorry if I’ve been staring, but you look just like my son who died recently.

“I’m sorry for your loss,” the young man replied. “Is there anything I can do for you?”

“Well, as I’m leaving, could you just say ‘Goodbye, mother!?’ It would make me feel so much better.” She gave him a sweet smile.

“Of course I can,” the young man promised.

As she gathered her bags and left, he called out “Goodbye, mother!” just as she had requested, feeling good about her smile.

Stepping up to the counter, he saw that his total was about $100 higher than it should be. “That amount is wrong,” he said. “I only have a few items!”

“Oh, your mother said that you would pay for her,” explained the clerk.

I had planned to write a post about the results of India’s general elections. After seeing so many articles on the same subject, I decided to give my readers some relief by posting this joke sent to me by a friend.

  1. Hahahah, the old & innocent trap, one almost always falls for this type of a sob story. Nice one, Pro! A much needed break from the seriousness of daily life.

  2. That was a good one, Pro 🙂 And the title is apt for your not-written post for Elections least a part of the saga 🙂 So maybe a sequel to this one?

  3. Thank you so much.. After being bombarded with the election mania.. modi mania.. and congress bashing mania
