They Don’t Call It Pain-em For Nothing

| New York, NY, USA | Language & Words

(I work as a volunteer at our small public library, usually at the front desk, helping patrons and checking out their books.)

Woman: *approaching desk* “Do you have…Hunger Pains?”

Me: “Sorry, what?”

Woman: “I think it’s called Hunger…Pains?

Me: “Oh, The Hunger Games? It’s very popular right now.”

Woman: “Oh, right. My son told me the name. I knew I was going to get it wrong!”
