(A customer approaches the counter with two sets of toys that build alien robots.)

Me: “Hello, ma’am. Are you all set to check out?”

Customer: “Look, I know that one of these robots is evil, and I need you to tell me which one it is. I ain’t bringin’ no evil into my grandson’s house!”

Me: “Well, I can assure you, ma’am, that none of the toys we sell are ev—”

Customer: “Look, I know you’re supposed to say that. But I know you know which one of these is evil, and you are gonna tell me right now before I leave this store!”

Me: “Uh…just don’t buy the red one.”

(She hands me the blue one and gives me a knowing nod of approval.)

Customer: “Don’t worry, I won’t tell nobody you told me!”
