At The Supermarket

           A  young man shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following  him around. If he stopped, she stopped. Furthermore she kept staring at him.
           She finally overtook him at the checkout, and  she 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, Mum" as I leave the  store, it would make me feel so happy."
           She then went through the checkout, and as she was on her way out of the store, the man called  out, "Goodbye, Mum."
           The little old lady waved, and smiled back  at him.
           Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine into  someone's day, he went to pay for his groceries.
           "That comes to  $121.85," said the operator.
           "How come so much ... I only bought 5 items.."
           The operator replied, "Yeah, but your Mother said you'd be paying for her things, too."
