"Customer service" joke
The exhausted clerk had pulled down blanket after blanket from the shelf, but still the woman customer was not satisfied.
"There is one more blanket left," said the clerk. "Do you care to see it?"
"I'm not going to buy one today," said the woman. "I have only been looking for a friend."
"Well," said the clerk,"I'll take the last one down if you think your friend might be in it."
