Here's the plot..lol. He comes in to my store everyday and procedes to tell me a new joke which are funny, but since its my store and i can't just leave, and i may be with a customer, What would you do? Here's the latest one... A string goes into a bar..bartender says can't you read..No strings allowed..string returns with a mustache..bartender says your the same string and you aren't allowed..so the string goes home ruffles himself up and twists and turns around..goes back to bar and the bartender says..Are you a string?..string says I'm a frayed knot..hee hee Do you like jokes?

Its the BROWNIE lady! Long time no see! Where ya been? Anything good in your shop for a lady on a diet? I do like jokes, but I do understand that this guy is making a pest of himself. He isn't buying anything and he could be interfering with a sale. But it is a funny joke.

That's a good joke :) I don't know about the customer coming in like that when you are with another customer. Maybe you can politely ask him to wait to tell you the joke when he sees you with another customer :)

Oh my goodness, that was just beyond funny. That made me laugh which was the cure I needed after the day I have been through. To me jokes are the best way to brighten anyones day. I love jokes, I am all the time looking for jokes. I got one for you: Why does the blonde put TGIF's in her shoes? So that she knows that toes goes in first. I got that one from a friend of mine that sent it to me online through myyearbook. Do you know any other jokes? Happy Mylotting

He looked at the girl and said Deniece and they liked that so they said what about the boy? He said Denephew..lol..hope you like!

Oh my gosh, that was so funny yet priceless. That sounds like something my brother in law would say. That was a good one. I am going to tell my hubby that one tomorrow when he gets home from work. He said the first one was funny. He is a huge joke person, he loves telling jokes along with joking with people. You should write all of these down and tell them in front of an audence. It is a great way to make money. Happy Mylotting

String could of said it was yarn. lol Jokes are ok long as I'm not telling them. As many jokes that I've heard over the years, I can't remember a single one. Even if I did, I always mess them up.

-gives Scoop a sock in the arm- Just so you don't feel left out. Yarn is string. Thought all guys knew that.

I love jokes. I think they help relieve tension and stress. Besides people shouldn't be too serious all the time. A good joke once in awhile is good for the soul. However, about your dilemma, i think the customer has good intentions. He may just want to brighten up your day with a joke or two. That's awfully nice of him. But if you're with a customer, i understand that it can be a little distracting and irritating. So i think the best thing to do is just politely talk to him and remind him that you are busy and it's not really the time for a joke. Hopefully he gets the hint and well,leave you alone, :)

I love jokes!! Even the old ones are good to laugh at! I haven't heard from you for a long time, have you been busy or is myLot messing up my notifications again? Jokester customers are such a pleasure yet if they don't realize how important your business is, they can be a detriment. I home your Joker realizes he takes a back seat to the cash register!

You're funny! ..................................and sexy! [i] A drunk walks into a bar and notices a banner that says "win $10,000; ask bartender for details". He asks and the bartender says "well, you see that man at the end of the bar?". The drunk looks over and sees a huge, burley dude. The bartender says "if you can knock him out with one punch, you go to the second step... The door right behind that big guy opens into a room containing an alligator with a sore tooth. If you can pull his tooth and come out alive, you move on to step three... Those stairs next to the door go up to an eighty year old hooker's apartment. She has never been satisfied by any man. If you can satisfy her, you win the money!" The drunk says ok and orders a double shot of whiskey. He belts that down, walks to the end of the bar and POW!, knocks the big dude out. He orders another double, belts it down, walks to the door, steps inside and closes the door. BAM, CRASH, GROWL is all the bartender and patrons can hear for a few minutes and then total silence. Five minutes later, the drunk walks out of the room bloody, clothes shredded. He orders another double, drinks it and says "o.k., where's the hooker with the sore tooth?".[/i]

I have a customer that does that too. He's an older guy. I just listen to him and laugh. Most of his jokes are actually pretty funny and he is considerate not to hold up the line for other customers. I actually enjoy listening to him. I wish I could remember some of the jokes to tell later but I'm not a good joke teller

I think jokes are ok with customers around. As long as they are not dirty and are not bothering the customers. You can tell by body language if he is making someone uncomfortable. So if you notice he is then politely say, "can you wait till I have a second please". He will should understand. I like jokes, that one I haven't heard. It was funny.
