The Clerk and the Cougher

A high school student is working his first day in a pharmacy when he’s approached by a customer who asks for something to cure his cough.

The boy hands him a box of laxatives, telling him to take them all at once. The man follows his orders, walks out of the drug store and leans against the building.

The druggist comes over and asks the boy what happened. The boy then tells the druggist about the man, his cough and that he gave the customer laxatives because he couldn’t find the cough medicine.

“Laxatives won’t cure a cough!” exclaims the pharmacist.

“Yes they will,” replies the boy. “Would you cough if you took laxatives?”
