And The Nerds Shall IPO The Earth

(A customer and her 7-year-old son approach me in the electronics department. The son has some video game and video game memorabilia in his hands.)

Customer: *to her son* “Why do you want to buy that crap?” *to me* “I pray that he doesn’t grow up to be a nerd. I just wish he would color his hair and get some tattoos.”

Me: “Nothing wrong with nerds.”

Lady: *scoffs* “Let’s just hope it’s just a phase!”
