Recently Bill Clinton was admonished for possibly telling a lie concerning his involvement with a young intern. Since no one here ever tells a lie - not us, not customers - I decided to make notes during the day about how honest we all are here.
The first customer through the door passed at the counter, reached up and removed his nose earring from an ample flared nostril and deposited it on the counter asking Chip to clean it. Chip looked at it without picking it up and said, “Ah, our ultrasonic is on the blink, why don’t you take it over across the street, their ultrasonic is working and they will be happy to clean it for you without charge.” I think I caught two possible untruths here. 1) The ultrasonic was not broke or out of whack and 2) The people across the street were not going to be any happier to clean it than we were.
