(I am flicking through some pre-owned games, minding my own business when a late 20s age looking woman speaks to me:)

Customer: “Do you know where the Skylanders discs are?”

(As much as I would like to work there, I don’t work there. I don’t have a uniform or anything that says I work there. I was most likely in a shirt with a game reference on it.)

Me: “What, Skylanders discs? I don’t know what you are talking about.”

Customer: “You’re a boy. You should know what they are. My little [Son] wants me to get him some characters for his game.”

Me: “Um, Skylanders characters aren’t discs but toy figures, and I don’t work here.”

Customer: “You are lying. Prove that Skylanders are toys.”

(I take this woman over to the ‘Skylanders’ toys and give a random one to her.)

Customer: “This is just a toy, not a disc.”

Me: “Okay, you must have seen your son play the game. These are what you put on a pad thing to play the character.”

Customer: “But then how do you explain how the game saves then?”

Me: “Have you ever used wireless internet?”

Customer: “Yes, why?”

Me: “It is like that on a small scale, and only works with the toys. Now are you going buy one of the toys?”

(The customer’s eyes shoot open.)

Customer: “I don’t remember what ones he wanted.”
