Less Twilight, More Daylight, Part 5

| Australia | Bizarre, Family & Kids, Health & Body

(Note: 40 degrees Celsius is about 104 degrees Fahrenheit.)

Me: *on the phone* “Hi, I’ll need you to come and pick up your son right away. He’s not feeling very well.”

Mother: “What’s wrong?”

Me: “He’s running a 40 degree temperature.”

Mother: “Oh. No, he’s fine. That’s normal.”

Me: “Uh, I’m sorry?”

Mother: “Don’t worry about him, love. That’s normal. He’s a werewolf, you know. Werewolves run hot. Didn’t you know that?”

(It takes me a few moments, but I realize she’s perfectly serious.)

Me: “I’m sorry, but I still think you need to take him to the doctor.”

Mother: “Ugh, fine. I’ll come and get him, but the doctor will only say what I told you!”

Santa Will Not Be Pleased

| Bellevue, WA, USA | Family & Kids, Holidays

(It’s three weeks until Christmas, and I’m ringing up a customer when her child speaks up.)

Child: “Mommy, when’s Christmas?”

Customer: “When you eat each and every one of the chocolates from the advent calendar, it’ll be Christmas.”

Child: “But I already ate all of the chocolate…”

Sorry, You’re Toast

, | Evans, GA, USA | Family & Kids, Food & Drink

Customer: “Does your kids’ chicken finger meal come with toast?”

(The little boy, about ten, looks horrified at the mention of toast.)

Me: “No, ma’am, it doesn’t.”

(The boy’s face immediately lights up with happiness.)

Customer: “Just add a piece of toast, then.”

Boy: “But mom, I don’t like toast!”

Customer: “You don’t know what you like.” *turns to me* “Add the toast.”

Boy: *looks like he’s about to cry*

Definitely Not On The DIY Channel

(I work at a kids clothing store and a customer comes in with his wife. He is holding his newborn baby.)

Customer: “Look what we made!”

The Son You Wish You Had

| Concord, NH, USA | Family & Kids, Holidays

(I am a greeter for the line to get pictures taken with Santa. A young mother and her two-year-old walk in.)

Me: “Hi! How are you folks doing today? Some little guy sure is adorable!”

Mom: “Hi! Oh, thanks! He looks just like Justin Bieber!”

Me: “Er…congratulations?”
