A store manager heard his clerk tell a customer, “No, maam, we havent had any for a while, and it doesnt look as if well be getting any soon.”
Horrified, the manager came running over to the customer and said, “Of course well have some soon. We placed an order last week.”
Then the manager drew the clerk aside. “Never,” he snarled, “Never, never, never say were out of anythingsay weve got it on order and its coming.
Now, what was it she wanted?”
“Rain,” said the clerk.
