    Bird Brained, Part 5

    | Keene, NH, USA |

    Customer: “Your bird bit my kid.”

    Me: “Well, the birds can’t reach their beaks through the cages. Did your son have his finger in the cage?”

    Customer: “Yeah. Well, there’s nothing telling you not to.”

    Me: “Sometimes they get scared when you poke your fingers into their cages, and the only way they know how to tell you is to nip you.”

    Child: “Oh, okay. I bet he was just scared.”

    Customer: “You should put up some signs in here telling people your birds bite!”

    (I show the customer the signs posted on each and every bird cage asking customers not to poke fingers into the cages as the birds may bite, as well as the additional two on the doors entering the bird room.)

    Customer: “Well, that’s stupid! How do you know I can read?”
