In the check-out line at Costco, a young employee asked with a completely straight face:
“The item at the top of your cart–will that be to purchase or for return?”
“I didn’t realize returns were an option on those,” I said.
Again, with nary a mouth twitch, he said, “If you have the original receipt.”
I expressed my regrets, as I did not. Joking, of course, and thankful my little man had no clue what we were talking about, lest he need future therapy.
Then again, I should probably be careful. He may be smarter than he looks. Out of nowhere the other day he announced:
“It is unacceptable that we don’t have a trampoline.”
Seriously, what? You’re three, kid. Come on.
