Me: “Oh, we carry three different types of jeans. So, we mark each pair to—”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “That’s not right. Tell me the real reason!”

Me: “Because they’re straight legged jeans.”

Customer: “NO!”

Me: “Well…ma’am, why do you think they’re marked like that?”

Customer: “Well, how should I know? That’s why I asked you, but you won’t tell me!”

Me: “They say that because the jean legs are straight all the way down, see?”

Customer: *angry* “The jeans aren’t gay friendly?!”

Me: “Uh…no, they are. They’re totally gay friendly.”

Customer: *brightens* “Oh, okay!”

(And she bought them!)
