    There’s No Time Like The Present

    | Raleigh, NC, USA |

    (I’m finishing a transaction for a supermarket customer; she’s just handed me her check but I notice an error.)

    Me: “Um, ma’am, if I could just have you fix this part right here–”

    Customer: “What’s wrong with it?”

    Me: “Well, this is 2009, ma’am.”

    Customer: “So what?”

    Me: “Well, you wrote the date as August 29, 3009, ma’am.”

    Customer: “I don’t understand what you’re telling me! I didn’t do anything wrong!”

    Me: “No, of course you didn’t. It was an honest mistake. If you just cross out the ’3′ in ’3009′ and write a ’2′ over it, that’ll do just fine.”

    Customer: “You know, every time I come in here I do EVERYTHING right! Every time! You’re the new girl! You think it’s coincidence that I suddenly start getting the year wrong?! Every time!”
