(My mom and I are out looking for a new toner for our laser printer. We go to the appropriate section in the store and look at the price.)

Mom: So this box has one toner?

Me: Yeah. It’s $74.99.

Mom: 75 dollars? You know what I should have done? Looked online. They probably have cheaper toners online.

Me: So…no toner?

Mom: No. We’re checking online.

(We leave the toner and start walking out.)

Mom: That was easy.

Me: Ha. Ha, ha. I see what you did there.

Mom: What? What did I do?

Me: …Oh. “That was easy” is this store’s slogan. You just used it ironically.

(Turns out my mom found the same toner online that was thirty dollars cheaper. That WAS easy!)
