CHEMIST SHOP...............

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

A young girl started work in the village chemist shop. She was very shy about having to sell condoms to the public. The owner was going on holiday for a couple of days and asked if she would be willing to run the shop on her own. She had to confide in him her worries about selling the contraceptives.

"Look," he said. "My regular customers dont ask for condoms, they'll ask for a 310 [small] a 320[medium] or a 330[large]. The word condom wont even be used.

The first day was fine but on the second day a black guy came in to the shop, put out his hand and said "350".

The girl panicked. She phoned the owner on his mobile and told him of her predicament.

" Go back in and check if he has a yellow bucket hanging between his legs"
her boss told her.

She peeped through the door and saw the yellow bucket hanging between his legs.

"Yes!" she said " He's got one hanging there!"
The boss said "Go back in and give him £3.50, he's the window cleaner!"

Reminds me of the time I went to get some 'Feminax'.
There was only a young lad behind the counter.
I asked for a packet of 'Feminax'.
He turned a little pink, went to the left hand of the counter and, regaining his composure and confidence, started pointing to the condoms, explaining the different varieties etc.

I felt really sorry for him, but had to say
Not Durex - Feminax - for period pains'.

Never ever seen anyone turn purple before or since.......

I used to work in a chemist/haberdashers/post office, but wasn't allowed in the post office part as I was only 13, and very shy, doing a Saturday job.

I used to get so embarrassed when the customers wanted condoms especially as I had to climb on some steps to get them from the top shelf! Took me ages to get used to serving without blushing!

I understand you're pretty funny as a deejay, and... well, comedy is a kind of hobby of mine.

Well-- Well, actually, it's a little more than just a hobby.

Reader's Digest is considering publishing two of my jokes.

- Really?

- Yeah.

And perhaps some night we could maybe get together and swap humorous stories for-for fun.

Oh, why not? Maybe play a couple of Tennessee Ernie Ford records.
That'd be a hoot.

- That's a joke, right?

- Maybe.

- I get it.

Ah well, Robert, before they do, to my mind, filth is in the eye of the beholder - more a reflection of their dirty mind....... ;-)

I listen to 'Round the Horn' on Rado 4 Extra.
Yes, I heard it as a child, but couldn't understand why my (much older) brothers were in hysterics - because I was innocent of mind.

Now, when I listen, I have tears rollling down my face - it's hilarious!!

When I was 12 one of my brothers said to me:
'Muffin the Mule isn't a criminal offence'!
Have to confess that I was well into my 20's before I realised the double entendre in it!!
