TOMMY'S DOG


Tommy, one of my neighbor's grandsons, walked into the convenience store and asked the clerk for a box of Tide so that he could wash his dog, Petey. The clerk was appalled and told the boy, "Son, you can't use Tide on a dog. It might hurt him. Are you sure you want Tide?"


"Oh, yes," Tommy insisted. So the clerk sold the boy a box of Tide.


The next day, Tommy skulked into the store with a very sad look on his face. "What's the matter, Tommy," the clerk asks.


"My dog died," the boy blurted out, tears rolling down his cheeks.


"That's terrible," said the clerk. "But remember, I told you that Tide might hurt your dog."


The boy responded, "I don't think it was the Tide. I think it was the spin cycle."
