October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

And…We’re Still Here (Happy New Year, Everyone!)

| Vermont, USA | Bizarre

(A customer, more intent on small talk than shopping, wanders into the bakery.)

Customer: “So, you have a stove in your bakery?”

Me: “Yup.”

Customer: “I run a thrift store. We’re looking for stoves. I’m gonna need a stove when I move.”

Me: “Oh?”

Customer: “Yeah, I’m building a church up on the mountain for when the famine hits. People will need a place to go, y’know?”

Me: “Um…yeah…that’s a good idea.”

Customer: “Yeah. It’ll be a church and thrift shop. Gotta diversify. You should do more than just baking at your bakery.”

Me: “We’ll take that into consideration…”

Customer: “Yeah, I was talking to my boss. You know how everyone thinks the world will end in 2012? Well, my boss told me to change that to 2011 in the US!”

Me: “Oh.”

Customer: “Yeah, there’s going to be a huge famine and everyone is going to die!”

Me: “Well, thanks for the warning. Have a nice day!”
