The Shoe Repair Ticket

Arnold was cleaning out the attic with his wife when he came across a claim ticket from the local shoe repair shop. The date stamped on the ticket showed it was over eleven years old. He asked his wife, "Do you think the shoes will still be in the shop?"

"Not likely," his wife said. “But it's worth a try."


Arnold drove to the shoe repair shop and, with a straight face, handed the ticket to the man behind the counter.  The man looked at the ticket and said, “Just a minute. I'll have to go look for these."  He disappeared to the back of the shop.

Two minutes later, the man called out, "Here they are!"


"No kidding?" Arnold called back. "That's terrific! Who would have thought they'd still be here after all this time."

The man came back to the counter and said, “They'll be ready on Thursday."
