Funny Merchant Joke 4

There were two grocers, Smith and Jones, in the same street. Smith had a sign in his window, “Avocados, 20 pence a pound”. A woman goes in and asks for some. “Sorry love”, said Smith, “I haven’t got any in just now; come back on Wednesday”.

So she goes on up the street to Jones. But his avocados are 2 pounds-fifty a pound! But at least he has them in stock.
“That’s a bit steep isn’t it? Smith’s are only 20 pence a pound”.
“Yeah”, says Jones, “and when I haven’t got any in stock, mine also are only 20 pence a pound!”

Merchant Joke 1

Shopkeeper Smith was alarmed when a new business, much like his own, opened in the storefront to the left of him. A huge sign was installed, reading BEST DEALS.

Mr. Smith was troubled a second time when another competitor leased the building on his right, and erected a much larger sign, reading LOWEST PRICES.

At this point Smith was really depressed, however, he came up with an idea. He put the biggest sign of all over his own shop…it read MAIN ENTRANCE.
