It was the opening day of
the big winter sale. Rumours and the advertising in the local paper were the
main reason for the long queue that had formed by 8:30, the opening time, in
front of the shop.
A small man pushed his way to the front of the queue, only to be pushed back, amid loud and colourful curses. On the man's second attempt, he was punched square in the jaw and knocked around a bit, and then thrown to the end of the queue again. As he got up a second time, he said to the person at the end of the line: "That does it! If they hit me once more, I won't open the shop!"
