Even Blind people need to shop! ( Late sunday humor )

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

My wife loves to go to stores just to look.  Me, I have looked and bought and now it is time to use!  But, here is one for everyone who enjoys browsing at a store.

An elderly gentleman walked into a boutique.  With him, a seeing eye dog.  Not wanting to stare at him, the clerk acknowledges him and says..."If you need a hand, just give me a yell.

The elderly man walked to the middle of the small store, takes his dog and starts to swing him around in a circle on his leash about shoulder high.

Startled by this the young clerk says.."SIR, MAY I HELP YOU WITH SOMETHING?"

"No," Says the elderly man, "I'm just looking around."

OK...go ahead and groan.  But that is how I feel when my wife says..."I'm just going to try on this one thing...12 garments later...still nothing to buy!

Janet...Maybe so

Wanda...I always wondered how a blind person did shop for things like clothes.  If he asked for a red shirt, and you were out of them and gave him a blue one...how long would it be before he found out? lol
