    (A customer in their 50s walks into my pawn shop, which sells weapons.)

    Customer: “Yeah, can you get me that shotgun behind the table?”

    Me: “Sure, do you have your license and registration?”

    Customer: “Yeah, right here.”

    Me: “Thank you sir. There’s a 5 day waiting period for firearms. Come back soon.”

    (He looks disappointed, but forks over the cash and walks out. Five days later…)

    Customer: “Okay, dude, I’m back. Where’s the gun?”

    Me: “Right here, sir…

    (I make the transaction and hand him his shotgun.)

    Me: “Have a nice day and come back soon!”

    (About one minute after the customer leaves the store, I hear several loud shotgun blasts. I look through the window and the man is firing rounds into the air! He then runs into the store.)

    Customer: “The zombie invasion has begun! It’s every man for himself!”

    (I hide under the desk and press the silent alarm. Five minutes later, the police arrive, taser the guy, and bring him out of our back room in cuffs. I work at an ice cream store now.)
