Two Is The Moan-iest Number

| Sacramento, CA, USA | Bizarre, Movies & TV

(I am a cashier working at a large department store. A customer comes up to my register holding a jersey with a large ‘2’ on it.)

Customer: “Hey, I want one of these jerseys, but I want one with a ‘1’ on it.”

Me: “Unfortunately, you got this out of clearance, right? We don’t carry back stock for anything in clearance. If you didn’t see a ‘1’ jersey while you were there, we probably don’t have one, sorry.”

Customer: “Okay, but I want one with a ‘1’ on it.”

Me: “I’m very sorry, sir; we don’t have one right now.”

Customer: “I want a ‘1’ jersey! It’s my birthday; I want to be number one, not two!”

Me: “One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever know. Two, can be as bad as one. It’s the loneliest number since the number one.”

Customer: “…okay.”

(Surprisingly, after hearing this the customer buys the ‘2’ jersey.)

Manager: “Did that just happen?”
