November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

Little White Lies Vs. Big Green Addictions

| Vancouver, BC, Canada | Family & Kids, Top

(I am ringing up a customer when her 7-8 year old son notices the scratch and win tickets under the plexiglass counter.)

Child: “Ooooo! Mom! We can get some lottery!”

Customer: “No.”

(He looks longingly at all the bright tickets.)

Child: “Are you sure? I could win a lot of money.”

Customer: “No, not today.”

(The child starts to whine loudly and the customer is obviously getting ticked off at her kid.)

Me: “Oh, you don’t want those ones. I checked them earlier and they’re all losers.”

(The customer bursts into laughter. I can see the child’s face working to see if he’s going to believe me or not.)

Child: “Really? No winners?”

Me: “Yup, not a single one.”

Child: “Oh…I guess I don’t need one then.”

(He runs off to put the shopping cart away.)

Customer: “Thank you so much!”
