    Customer: “Are you a Christian, dear?”

    Me: “Why do you ask?”

    Customer: “Are you?”

    Me: “Well, no. Why do you want to know?”

    Customer: “Oh. I would like to be helped by someone else, please.”

    Manager: “You’re right, ma’am, I shall definitely have to reprimand her.”

    Me: *surprised* “What for?”

    Manager: “For failing to notice that the lady was not planning on paying for the three Mars bars and the map of Europe she must have put in her bag while you were fetching me.”
