On a family vacation in "Texas，my brother-in-law Mike exhibited the exuberance of a tourist. At a diner，he and his brothers ordered cheeseburgers When his meal arrived，the first thing Mike noticed was its size.
"Wow，“he exclaimed，"everything is bigger in Texas !”
As he lifted the burger to his lips，his eyes met the cold stare of a 300-pound waitress.
Every year，our family holds a rummage sale. I have to justify my pricing system to my husband by explaining that no matter how low you mark an item，someone will always want to buy it for less.

Just then I spotted one of our best customers and his wife heading my way. Quickly, I wiped my mouth and greeted them. As I processed their transaction，I noticed they were looking at me oddly.
On their way out, the man said,“I don't understand these young people.”
"Dear，that's a fashion statement，”his wife explained."It's a new type of brooch.”
I looked down to see what could have caused such controversy. To my horror，a large potato chip was resting neatly on my left shoulder.
Several years had passed since I worked for the federal government，but old habits died hard. A cable-television technician had just finished hooking up our service at home and told me he needed the 2185. I hadn't heard about this form before arid asked him，" Where can I get that form'2185'"?
Looking at me peculiarly, he replied."Ma'am，it's money.$21.85. "
