    Mrs. Understanding

    | Ontario, Canada |

    (A mother and daughter approach the till. The mother neatly places the items they want to take on the counter. The daughter throws an unwanted dress in a heap.)

    Mother, to daughter: “No, no, no! You pick that up! You hang that on the hanger! YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND! Hang it up and put it away!”

    (The daughter starts to hang it up.)

    Mother: “You need to understand what it’s like working here! You need to get a job in retail so that you will understand! Everyone should work in retail! When we get home, you’re getting a job in retail!”

    (The mother turns to me.)

    Mother: “Don’t you think everyone should work here? Isn’t this a terrible job?”

    Me: “How about food service?”

    Mother: *gasps* “Yes! Yes!” *turns to daughter* “When we get home, you’re getting a job at a restaurant, so you will understand!”
