Anyone who knows me well knows I have an impossibly soft spot for limericks. And once I begin, I can create them all day. What else did you expect from a person with DELANEY as their last name? Here then, in honor of St Patrick’s day, are a few originals for my retailing friends:
There was a young manager of a store
Who found Mondays an incredible bore
Off loading cartons ’til noon
With no shelves in the backroom
And pallets moved straight to the floor.
A cashier who worked at the til
Had sticky fingers for ten dollar bills
’til one day when an audit
Turned up what it oughtn’t
And now her paycheck is nil.
An owner with no eye for good ads
Tried to create trendy sales fads
a butt of the jokes
among internet folks
for boxers half off for all lads.
(Hey, it can’t all be Pulitzer material….Happy St Patricks Day.)
