Hump Day Humor - Beware of the sweet little old lady

My dad sent me this one. I may have to try it in my older years, assuming I'm sweet enough to get away with it.

A young man shopping in a supermarket noticed a sweet little old lady following him around. If he stopped, she stopped. Furthermore she kept staring at him.

She finally overtook him at the checkout, turned to him and said, "I hope I haven't made you feel ill at ease; it's just that you look so much like my late son."

He answered, "That's okay."

"I know it's silly, but if you'd call out "Good bye, Mom" as I leave the store, it would make me feel so happy."

She then went through the checkout. As she was on her way out of the store, the man called out, "Goodbye, Mom!"

The little old lady waved, and smiled back at him.

Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine into some one's day, he went to pay for his Groceries.

"That comes to $121.85," said the clerk.

"How come so much .... I only bought 5 items.."

The clerk replied, "Yeah, but your Mother said you'd be paying for her things, too."
