*WHY WOMEN SHOULDN'T TAKE MEN SHOPPING*
*After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on
her trips to the local convenience store. Unfortunately, like most men, I found
shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally
unfortunate, my wife is like most women - she loves to
browse. Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter
from the store.
Dear Mrs. Jacobs,
Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a
commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and
have been forced to ban both of you from the store. Our
complaints against your husband, Mr. Jacobs are listed
below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras.

them in other people's carts when they weren't looking.

go off at 5-minute intervals.

floor leading to the women's restroom..
**4. **July 19**:**Walked up to an employee and told her in
an official voice, 'Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right
away'. This caused the employee to leave her assigned
station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in
turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to
lose time and costing the company money.

box of SMARTIES on lay-buy.

he began crying and screamed, 'Why can't you people just

used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.
**11. October 3:**Darted around the store suspiciously while
loudly humming the ' Mission Impossible' theme.
**12. October 6:**In the auto department, he practiced his
'Madonna look' by using different sizes of funnels.
**13. October 18:**Hid in a clothing rack and when people
browsed through, yelled 'PICK ME! PICK ME!'
**14. October 21:**When an announcement came over the loud
speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed 'OH NO!
IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!'*
*And last, but not least:*
**15. October 23:**Went into a fitting room, shut the door,
waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no
toilet paper in here.' One of the clerks passed out.*
