Life in a Small-town, U.S.A.

Though I walkMy home-town…

Ahead of me in line today at the gas station there was this little old lady named Doris renting a movie. She asks the clerk, “How long?”

The very polite clerk says, “I don’t know ma’am, let me take a look.”

First, the clerk checks the back of the video box. Then he looks through a three-ring binder. Then he calls the manager over. Then the owner comes over, because you know, by now a big crowd has gathered.

Ten minutes later they get on the Internet and find the answer.

“121 minutes!” cries the manager triumphantly, literally holding the video up for all to see.

Doris says, “121 minutes? I thought I’d have at least until tomorrow to return it!”
