‘Cash, cheque or charge?’ I asked,
after folding items the woman wished to purchase.
As she fumbled for her wallet I noticed a remote control
for a television set in her purse.
‘So, do you always carry your TV remote?’ I asked.
‘No,’ she replied, ‘ but my husband refused to come shopping with me, and
I figured this was the most evil thing
I could do to him legally.’
