(I look through our blow up water toys. I find one, but in order to get to it I have to take several packages off the hook. In doing so, the boy sees the blow up toy in front of the one I am aiming for. He looks at me, dumbfounded.)

Boy: “THAT is not a shark. THAT is an orca.”

Me: “I was aiming to get the toy behind it, and–”

Customer:“Excuse me, my bills wont work. Can I exchange you for a five?”

Me: “Sorry. All I have is this.”

Customer: “What the heck is that?”

Me: “It’s a Canadian bill.”

(The customer continues to look confused.)

Customer: “What’s Canadian?”

Me: “It’s the country right above you. Canada?”
