Second Chance

I could have been your friend,
but I treated you so bad.
Now I am so ashamed,
I was so angry and mad.
I could have been your friend,
if I treated you like one.
I realize I was wrong,
I'm sorry for what I've done.
If only I had another chance,
I would treat you so good.
I would shower you with love,
the way I should.
I could have been your friend,
and helped you too.
I wish I had a second chance,
I would be nice to you.

A clever salesman ?

Chuck owns a grocery store.
He put up a sign on the window,
'Tomatoes 25 cents a piece, three for a dollar.'
The first customer walked in and complained.
"That's not fair!" the young lady said.
"I should get four tomatoes for a dollar."
Chuck quickly apologized and provided the
customer, four tomatoes for a dollar.
The second customer walked in
and made a big fuss about it.
"That sign can't be right" he said,
"it should be four instead of three"
Chuck agreed with the old man and
sold him four tomatoes for a dollar.
Chuck's friend, Doug stood nearby
and watched the whole episode.
He pulled Chuck aside.
"Aren't you forgetting something?" Doug asked.
"You should correct the mistake on the sign."
"What mistake?" Chuck bellowed.
"Before the sign was up," Chuck said. 
"customers only bought one tomato."
