    A store manager overheard a clerk saying to a customer, "No, ma'am, we haven't
    had any for some weeks now, and it doesn't look as if we'll be getting any
    soon."

    Alarmed, the manager rushed over to the customer who was walking out the door
    and said, "That isn't true, ma'am. Of course, we'll have some soon. In fact, we
    placed an order for it a couple of weeks ago."

    Then the manager drew the clerk aside and growled, "Never, never, never, never
    say we don't have something. If we don't have it, say we ordered it and it's on
    its way. Now, what was it she wanted?"

    "Rain."

    "Rain"? Oh, I get it now. First I thought it was another Walmart ammo thread. :rofl:
