    Tweedledee and Tweedledum

    | Santa Cruz, CA, USA |

    (…so it was my job to exchange prizes for tickets. A customer comes up to me and I count their tickets.)

    Me: “You have 24 tickets.”

    (Customer looks around at prizes.)

    Customer: “How much is that remote control car?”

    Me: “That’s 600 tickets. You should probably look at the smaller prizes you can afford, like the rings and rubber snakes. They are only two tickets each.”

    Customer: “Okay, I’ll take that lava lamp.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, the lava lamp is 14,000 tickets and you have 24 so I highly suggest looking at cheaper prizes like these rubber snakes.”

    (Customer finally decides he needs to go get more tickets and returns to playing games. Another customer approaches and I count their tickets.)

    Me: “You have 650 tickets.”

    Another Customer: “Okay, I’d like 80 of the snakes but only red and green ones.”

    Me: “Wouldn’t you prefer a remote control car or this water gun?”

    Another Customer: “No, I want snakes!”
