The PFF asked me to help MC, and to do a 15-20 min minute set, which is the exact length of this one song, which is based on something that really happened
Years ago my neighbor Martha told me that she got into a kerfuffle with a cashier at our local grocery store when she had 13 items in the express line. Ultimately the store manager opened up a separate checkout for those 3 items, by the time she left the store the cashiers were yelling at her, she was yelling back at them, and she was afraid to shop there for 3 months.
The rest of the stuff I made up.
One thing I have learned during this pandemic is that this is my most requested funny song and I hadn't performed it in years. Why? Who knows. But here it is -- enjoy! And I'll ask you, too. Who would you like to see in this play? You can choose anyone dead or alive to create your dream cast.
