The Retired Husband

 I received this inan email from a friend I just had to share. Enjoy :0}

After I retired, my Pat insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Target. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women - she
loves to browse. Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Wal Mart.

Dear Mrs. Marion,
Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store.  We cannot tolerate this behaviour and have been forced to ban both o you from the store.  Our complaints against your husband are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras.   

1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people's carts when they weren't looking.

2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom.

4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, 'Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away'. This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to lose time and costing the company money.

5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&Ms on layaway.

6. August 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area

7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged.

8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, ' Why can't you people just leave me alone?' EMTs were called.

9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the 'Mission Impossible' theme.

12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his 'Madonna look' by using different sizes of funnels.

13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled 'PICK ME! PICK ME!'

14. October 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed 'OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!'

And last, but not least:

15. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in here.' One of the clerks passed out.


  1. Best laugh so far this weekend, thanks Paula!

  2. I love that, just put it into an e-mail and sent it to friends

  3. :o) I've received that one before. I think it's hilarious. I see ya'll are getting more snow. I hate it for ya...and don't kill me but I was outside Saturday in my tank top and shorts grilling on the back deck after putting all my plants back outside from the spare room. I took it easy but it just about did me in. Yesterday I didn't do squat but crochet. xoxo

  4. That was hilarious!! Loved #5, 13, and 15. Thanks for the laughs that was awesome. :D
