It’s Funnier When The Parents Do It

(I work at a major gaming retailer. A customer walks in with her son and wants to trade games in for another game. I have a running joke I state to customers: when signing over games, I verify that they are their games and not games from some kids they beat up.)

Me: “Alright, ma’am. Please sign on the pad stating these are your games, that you are voluntarily selling them to us, and that you didn’t beat up some kid and leave him in a snow drift somewhere.”

(The customer’s 14 year old son cracks up laughing.)

Customer: “How can you say that?! That is a rude and despicable thing to accuse me of!”

Son: “Mom, he’s kidding!”

(The customers behind her start laughing as well.)

Customer: “Ah, okay. I’d like [game] in exchange, please.”
