Monday Mirth

A salesman, tired of his job, gave it up to become a policeman.

Several months later, a friend asked him how he liked his new role.

'Well,' he replied, 'the pay is good and the hours aren't bad, but what I like best is that the customer is always wrong.'
Why are blonde jokes so short?
So men can remember them.
A man was speeding down the highway, feeling secure in a group of cars all travelling at the same speed; however, as they passed a speed trap, he got nailed with an infrared speed detector and was pulled over.

 The officer handed him the citation, received his signature and was about to walk away when the man asked, 'Officer, I know I was speeding, but I don't think it's fair - there were plenty of other cars around me who were going just as fast, so why did I get the ticket?'

'Ever go fishing?' the policeman asked.

'Uhhh, yeah...' the startled man replied.

The officer grinned and added, 'Ever catch ALL the fish?'

Rossi was the manager of an upscale men’s wear store in a wealthy section of town and was interviewing Abe for the recently advertised salesman role.
Rossi looks at Abe’s resume and notices that Abe has never worked in retail before.
Rossi says to Abe, “What chutzpah, if you don’t mind me saying. For someone with no retail experience, you are certainly asking for a high salary.”
“Well I suppose I am,” Abe replies, “but you must understand that the work is so much harder when you don’t know what you’re doing.”
