November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

The Generation Size Gap

| Hampshire, England, UK | Bizarre, Health & Body

(I’m standing near the front of the store, greeting customers as they come in. An elderly gentleman enters with a walking stick.)

Me: “Hello.” *smiling*

Customer: *suddenly frowning* “GOOD GOD! GOOD GOD!”

Me: “Are you okay?”

Customer: “GOOD GOD!” *raises stick and pokes me in the stomach with it* “Would you look at that?! You could live for years! Forever in that body!”

Me: “Erm, thanks?!”

Customer: “No! I mean you must be one of those genetic throwbacks! You don’t get trim girls anymore. Girls these days are FAT FAT FAT! I bet you could even run if you needed to!”

Me: “Sometimes I run; I mostly just eat healthy really.”

Customer: “GOOD GOD! I must go and get Marjorie from the CD shop and show you to her! GOOD GOD!”

(He turns and leaves, but never does return. Not even with Marjorie.)
