Laughter is the Best Medicine

Drove my friend, who is very ill to the Cingular store so she could get a new phone. Ernest young salesman carefully explained the differences between the one year and two year plans. Simultaneously we look at each other and burst into gales of laughter. The salesman looked most perplexed.

She explained the reason- she'll be lucky to have another year, much less two.

The salesman took in stride and was most helpful, a distinct pleasure after some of my previous encounters with folks in the service business.

Sometimes you just gotta laugh, even it's not really appropriate. It beats the alternative.

Yes, laughter is the best meds. I bet you two laugh a lot as good friends. :)

Ironically, I was at the cell phone store a few days ago, checking out a speaker type cell phone since my contract has been up for 10 months...

So good that you could both laugh about it. And good for the salesman, too!
