A supermarket chain in Florida is hiring a produce supervisor. Its hiring process involves bringing candidates on-site to see them in action for a full shift.
One candidate is having his audition when a customer asks if he can buy half a head of lettuce. The candidate tells him that they sell only whole heads of lettuce. The customer persists and asks to see the manager. The candidate says that he'll speak to his manager about it and goes to the back office and says, "Some asshole wants to buy half a head of lettuce." As he finishes his sentence, he turns around and sees the customer standing right behind him so he adds, "And this gentleman has kindly offered to buy the other half." The manager approves the deal and after the shift is over speaks to the candidate.
-- "I was impressed with the way you got yourself out of that situation earlier," he says. "We like people who think on their feet here. Where are you from, son?"
-- "Canada, sir."
-- "Well, why did you leave Canada?"
-- "Sir, there's nothing but whores and hockey players up there."
-- "Really? says the manager. "My wife is from Canada."
-- "No kidding" says the candidate, "Who'd she play for?"
