A Tall Story

| St Paul, MN, USA | Uncategorized

Me: “Hi, what can I get for you today?”

Customer: “A pack of cigarettes.”

Me: “Can I see your ID please?”

(He hands over an ID of an obvious relative, but not him. The ID says he’s 6’1” and 238 lbs, but this kid is maybe 5’7” and 180 lbs.)

Me: “This is you?”

Customer: “Yeah.”

(I proceed to quiz him on everything on the ID and he gets it all right, without hesitation.)

Customer: “Um, I’ve been sick.”

Me: “So you lost some height then?”
