John worked in a supermarket. A customer came in and asked John for half a kilogram of butter. The boy told him that they only sold 1 kilogram packets of butter, but the man was persistent. The boy said that he would ask his manager what to do.
John walked into the back room and said, "There's a bloody idiot out there who wants to buy only half a kilogram of butter." As he finished saying this, he turned around to find the customer standing right behind him. John immediately added, "And this gentleman wants to buy the other half."
The manager finished the deal and later said to John, "You almost got yourself in a lot of trouble earlier, but I must say I was impressed with the way you got yourself out of it. You think on your feet, and I like it a lot. Which place are you from?"
John replied, "I'm from Mexico, Sir."
"Oh, really? Why did you leave Mexico?" asked the manager.
John replied, "Everyone there is either a prostitute or a soccer player."
"My wife is from Mexico," the manager said.
John immediately replied, "Which team did she play for?"
