Abbot and Costello Overheard at Costco

Older lady: Could you help me?

Costco guy: Yes, what can I do for you?

O: I seem to have lost my cart.

C: Ok, where was it?

O: Right where that empty cart is.

C: So, that empty cart isn't yours?

O: No, you see, mine had my prescriptions in it. Right in front, in the child's seat.

C: Do you think someone might have just taken the prescriptions from the cart?

O: That cart is empty.

C: Yes.

O: Mine had my prescriptions in it.

C: Yes.

O: So, that's not my cart.

C: But, if someone took the prescriptions out of the cart, the cart would be empty.

O: I don't think you're listening to me. That's not my cart. I can tell it's not my cart because my cart wasn't empty.

C: Well, I'm going to tell the people up front to double check all the prescription receipts.

O: If you're going to go off and work on something else, would you find someone to help me find my cart?

C: Tell you what, while I look for your cart, why don't you use that empty one?

O: What if that's someone else's cart?

C: No, uh... that was my cart. I was using it.

O: Ah HA! If that's your cart, why did you tell me it was mine?

C: I'll be right back.

To no one in particular:

O: I told him it wasn't my cart. I'm going to find a manager.

And so it goes...
