    May Contain Scenes Of Gratuitous Bowie

    | London, UK |

    Customer: “Yes, I’m looking for this movie for my daughter: Pan’s Labyrinth. I heard it was very good.”

    Me: “Yes, it was very good.”

    Customer: “Do you think the girls would like it?”

    Me: “I don’t know, how old are they?”

    Customer: “Nine.”

    Me: “Uh, ma’am, Pan’s Labyrinth isn’t really a kids movie. It’s about the Spanish Civil War.”

    Customer: “The what?”

    Me: “The Spanish Civil War. General Franco. There’s a scene where a man gets his face beaten in.”

    Customer: “But in the previews it looks like a kid’s movie, like that other movie with puppets.”

    Me: “Do you mean Labyrinth?”

    Customer:“Yes!”

    Me: “That may be a better choice, trust me.”

    Customer: *leaves*

    Coworker: “I don’t know if David Bowie’s giant crotch is really safe for kids either…”

    Maybe He’s Molting

    | Springfield, VA, USA | Top

    (Many young couples with young children belong to my pool, and many of them ask a lot of questions. A man leads his 6-year-old son into our guard office.)

    Pool patron: “Excuse me, ma’am?”

    Me: “Yes sir? Can I help you?”

    Pool patron: “I’m very scared my son is in trouble.”

    Me: “Is he okay? Did he hurt himself in the pool? Are there any major injuries?”

    Pool patron: “His skin is all wrinkled and soft. It feels strange. Is it going to fall off?”

    Me: “Sir, that happens to everyone’s skin who has been in water for an extended period of time.”

    Pool patron: “So his skin won’t fall off, right?”

    Ah, Grandmothers

    , | Ohio, USA |

    (I was working in the fitting room and overheard an obviously frustrated grandmother and her 7 year old granddaughter yelling at each other.)

    Grandmother: “Put on your d*** pants!”

    Girl: “No! I don’t want to!”

    Grandmother: “1…2…3…”

    Girl: “Nooooo! I hate you!”

    Grandmother: “Well, I hate you too, so we’re even!”

    A Blasphemer In The Church Of Chocolate

    | Anchorage, AK, USA |

    Me: “Merry Christmas!”

    Customer: “That’s just garbage!”

    Me: “Happy Hanukkah?”

    Customer: “None of that s*** means anything!”

    Me: *still trying to be cheerful* “All the chocolate is half-off
    tomorrow!”

    Customer: “I don’t like chocolate!” *glares*

    Rescue 911, Transylvania Edition

    , | West Palm Beach, FL, USA |

    (Note: South County is a psychiatric institution.)

    911: “911, what is your emergency?”

    Caller: “Yeah, I’m sorry to bother you but I am checking into South County tomorrow. I’m afraid to go cause there is a guy who works there who wears a star and says he’s a vampire.”

    911: “People are allowed to be vampires if they want to be, ma’am.”

    Caller: “Oh yeah? What if he tried to bite me?”

    911: “Did he try to bite you?”

    Caller: “No.”

    911: “Give us a call back if he tries to bite you.”
