    Youth In Asia

    | Fridley, MN, USA |

    (A woman came up to my register today and began putting her items up on the counter. All of a sudden, she stopped to listen to the pet store advertisements that we have playing all day in the store. The ad mentioned donations would prevent unnecessary euthanasia in animals at shelters.)

    Woman: “What would they do with the euthanasia?”

    Me: “The donations would help animals find homes so they wouldn’t use euthanasia unless it was absolutely necessary.”

    Woman: “What do euthanasia have to do with it?”

    Me: “Well, euthanasia means putting them to sleep.”

    Woman: “They’re killed?”

    Me: “Essentially.”

    Woman: “I thought that was just a rumor.”

    Me: “…what?”

    Woman: “So do they eat them?”

    Me: *so confused* “…the vets?”

    Woman: “No. The kids.”

    Me, perplexed: “…kids?”

    Woman: “In Asia!”

    (Then I realized that she meant youth in Asia. Not, euthanasia. And here I thought that mistake was only made on TV. Wow.)
