Outdated And Outsmarted

| Kent, England, UK | Extra Stupid, Holidays, Theme Of The Month

(I’m doing a bit of Christmas shopping. I stop at a calendar stand in the middle of the shopping center, and start looking through the stock. I think nothing of two customers appearing next to me until they start talking.)

Customer #1: “Are these calendars for next year?”

Customer #2: “I don’t know. Check the date.”

Customer #1: “I can’t see it.”

Me: “Are you serious?”

Customer #1: “Excuse me?”

Me: “It’s the middle of December. The last month of the year. Why would anybody need to buy a calendar for this year?”

Customer #2: “You can’t talk to my daughter like that! She’s not stupid!”

Me: “With all due respect, I’m not the one questioning if calendars being sold in December are for next year.”
