    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!”
