There’s No Time Like The Present

(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!”
