Goodbye Mom!              Back to Jokes  /  Back Home

Thanks to Mitch for sending this one!

A young man shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following
him around. If he stopped, she stopped. Furthermore she kept staring at him.
 
She finally overtook him at the checkout, And she turned to him and said, "I
hope I haven't made you feel ill at ease; it's just that you look so much
like my late son."
 
He answered, "That's okay.."
 
"I know it's silly, but if you'd call out "Good bye, Mom" as I leave the
store, It would make me feel so happy."
 
She then went through the checkout, And as she was on her way out of the
store, The man called out, "Goodbye, Mom."
 
The little old lady waved, and smiled back at him.
 
Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine Into someone's day, he went to
pay for his Groceries.
 
"That comes to $121.85," said the clerk..
 
"How come so much ... I only bought 5 items.."
 
The clerk replied, "Yeah, but your Mother said you'd be paying for her
things, too."
