176. Doctor’s Waiting Room, Buenos Aires

Receptionist (85!):  …yes, I’ve got 7 pins in my heel, they had to put them in last year…

Gustavo (37):  7 pins!!  I bet you make all the metal detectors go off…

Receptionist:  Oh yes, at Carrefour round the corner I used to have to take my X-Rays with me because it was always going off.  But they know me now.

Gustavo’s comment:  You’ve heard it here first – the new technique for hypermarket shoplifting is to take an X-ray with pins along with you.

Loosely translated from Blogudeces de la Vida Cotidiana, with thanks to Gustavo.
