Attention Shoppers


I used to work at a department store. Every night, at closing time, our customer-service representative would remind shoppers to finish their shopping, over the public-address system. One evening, a woman who had recently worked at Q-Mart, the nearby grocery store, opened the announcement by saying “Attention Q-Mart shoppers…” Quickly realizing her mistake, she tap-danced her way out of trouble by adding, “…you are in the wrong store.”
