    (I am assistant manager at an adult novelty item store. Two teenage girls approach the counter giggling to themselves. They sheepishly each place a particular kind of adult novelty item on the counter.)

    Me: “Would you ladies also require batteries for your items?”

    Girl #1: “Oh, these don’t come with batteries?”

    Me: “No, it’s typically how the manufacturers of these products save money on production.”

    Girl #1: *giggles* “No, thank you. I’m buying this for a friend.”

    Girl #2: “Yes, me too. I’m also buying this for a friend. She won’t need batteries.”

    (I conclude the purchase with the embarrassed young ladies and begin to assist the next customer, a woman in her late 20s/early 30s.)

    Woman: “Yes, I will be needing batteries because I’m buying this for me!”

    Me: “Can I please shake your hand?”
