Piercing Puerility

| Connecticut, USA | Health & Body

Customer: “How do I know my nose ring goes all the way through my nose?”

Me: “What do you mean?”

Customer: “Well, I can’t see it, so that must mean that it doesn’t go all the way through my nose.”

Me: “Your nose ring goes all the way through your nostril.”

Customer: “But I can’t see it.”

Me: “You’re not supposed to see it.”

Customer: “But it doesn’t go all the way through my nose!”

Me: “The word ‘pierce’ means that it goes all the way through your nostril. It wouldn’t be pierced if it didn’t go all the way through.”

Customer: “But I can’t see it!”

Me: “You’re not supposed to see it. Unless you get a hoop, you’re not going to see it.”
