I really do enjoy a good story where someone "gets away" with something, especially when the rules are simply pointless.
A man has a doctor appointment the next day that he wants to cancel.
So he goes into the office and asks the person at the desk, "Can I cancel my appointment?"
The person at the desk responds, "Of course, but there is a $100 cancellation fee if the appointment is in less than a week."
The man thinks for a minute than asks, "Is there a fee to reschedule my appointment?" The person at the desk responds, "No, when do you want to reschedule it to?"
The man says, "In one week, please." The person sets the appointment and the man says, "Alright can I please cancel that appointment?"
And because I am feeling generous...
I got fired on the first day of my new job for asking customers if they would prefer "Smoking or Non-Smoking."
Apparently, the correct phrase is, "Cremation or Burial."
