    Customer: “Why isn’t it RED?!”

    Me: “Sir, the watermelon flavor is red.”

    Customer: “That’s sacrilegious!”

    | Las Vegas, NV, USA |

    (A mother and her teenage son come through my line…)

    Me: “Hello, did you find everything you need?”

    Mother: “Yes, we did.”

    (I notice she is buying party items, including cups, soda, pizzas, napkins… and condoms.)

    Me: “Oh, are you having a party soon?”

    Mother: *nods* “My little James is growing up. He’s going to have an orgy with all his little friends, aren’t you Captain Muffinpants?”

    Me: *suppresses laughter* “Will that be all?”

    Son: “YES! YES THAT WILL BE ALL!” *runs to car*

    Customer: “But the party is now! What the f*** am I supposed to do with no balloons?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, sir, it takes a while. I will do them as fast as possible.”

    (He leaves and I start to fill up so many balloons my fingers are red.)

    Customer: “About time!”

    Me: “Okay, sir. I’m sorry you lost the balloons, so I took 25% off.”

    Customer: “You’re charging me for these?!”

    Me: “Yes, you are buying more balloons.”

    Customer: “But I just paid for balloons, and they flew away.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, but you bought them and you’re buying more. I need to charge you.”

    Customer: “But this was your fault! You shouldn’t have made them so… floaty!”

    Me: “… I’m very sorry, but these are less… floaty.”

    Customer: “Really?”

    Me: *sarcastically* “Yes!”
