Too Much Fine Print

A customer’s request to the general store in his vacation town:

“I would like to reserve a New York Times, Star-Ledger, and Post for every Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from June 22 till Labor Day.

However, we will be in Greece from July 1 to July 8. My son may or may not pick up the papers then, we don’t know. We will be in Spain for two weeks in August. Not sure which two, though. We’ll try to let you know.

Oh, and we don’t need the Times on any Mondays in July, except the 8th of July.”

The store’s response: “Effective July … we will no longer be reserving newspapers.”
