The very young greens produce assistant tells him that they sell only whole cauliflowers. The bloke persists and asks to see the manager.
The boy says he'll ask his manager about it.
Walking into the stock room, the boy said to his manager 'Some bloody idiot out there wants to buy half a cauliflower.'
As he finished his sentence, he turned to find the bloke standing right behind him, so he added,
'And this gentleman has kindly offered to buy the other half.'
The manager approved the deal, and the bloke went on his way.
Later the manager said to the boy, 'I was impressed with the way you got
yourself out of that situation earlier. We like people who think on their feet here - Where are you from, son?
'Cardiff, sir,' the boy replied.
'Well, why did you leave Cardiff?' the manager asked.
The boy said, 'Sir, there's nothing but prostitutes and rugby players there.'
'Really?' said the manager. 'My wife is from Cardiff.'
'You're kidding?' replied the boy. ' What position did she play?'
