Home Before Christmas

A woman was waiting at the checkout at a busy supermarket, Her arms were heavily laden with a mop and broom and other cleaning supplies. By her actions and deep sighs, it was obvious she was in a hurry and not happy about the slowness of the line.

When the cashier called for a price check on a box of soap, the woman remarked indignantly, "Well, I'll be lucky to get out of here and home before Christmas!"

"Don't worry," replied the checkout person. "With that wind kicking up out there and that brand new broom you have here, you'll be home in no time."
