Daily Joke: A Guy Walks into Shoe Store and Asks for a Pair of Size 8 Running Shoes
As Christmas approaches, the shopping season is on, and finding the right size can be harder than people would imagine. Here's a hilarious joke about a man who walked into a shoe store and asked for a size eight shoe.
A man walked into a shoe store and asked for the attending clerk. The man asked if he could try on a pair of joggers. The clerk said he would be happy to help and asked him about the size.
"I wear a size eight," the man said. The clerk looked at the man's feet and was shocked. "But, sir, I can see from up here you're at least a size 11," he said.
THE WRONG SIZE SHOE
The man angrily looked at the clerk and said, "Just bring me the size eight pair." The clerk scrabbled to the back of the store and fetched the shoes.
The man took a seat, shoved his enormous feet in the shoes, tied the laces, and stood up. The clerk could clearly see that the man was uncomfortable.
The clerk mustered up the courage to talk to the man again. He said, "We have various sizes available for this pair with no cost difference between them. Why must you have these undersized shoes?"
THE STORY BEHIND THE SMALL SHOES
The man looked over at the clerk with a tear in his eye "I went through a lot in the past month," he said. "I lost all my money in business and became broke. I couldn't keep my wife happy. She went to her mother's.
"I got a call some days later from her mother saying that she ran away with my partner and are spending their honeymoon in Tahiti." The man explained how he was going from place to place, dropping his CV and expecting to get a job.
The clerk felt embarrassed about asking the question and was left speechless. "I have to walk everywhere, eat at the soup kitchen, and wear the same clothes for days on end. The only thing that brings me joy is taking these shoes off."
A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS
One night, a wife found her husband standing in front of their baby's crib in deep thought. The wife silently watched him as he gazed down.
As he looked at the sleeping infant, his face expressed a tsunami of emotions. Disbelief, doubt, delight, amazement, enchantment, skepticism were crawling on his face.
His deep emotional thought and touched the wife. She walked in, put her arms around him, and said, "A penny for your thoughts."
THE HUSBAND'S DISBELIEF
The husband looked over at his wife and said, "It's amazing." His wife looked at the infant with a smile and said, "Isn't it?" He replied, "I just can't see how anybody can make a crib like that for only $46.50."
