A Diet Made Up Of Wishful Shrinking

, , , , | Right | December 31, 2010

(The customer orders a large mix of cake batter and chocolate ice creams, with cookie dough mixed in.)

Customer: “Do you know how many calories are in this?”

Me: “I don’t know. Probably over 1000.”

Customer: “Oh, God, you’re kidding, right? Please tell me you’re kidding. I’m on a diet and I can’t have anything over 100 calories.”

Me: “Sorry to hear that.”

Customer: “I feel horrible about myself. I’m going to get fat. Please, tell me it’s under 100 calories.”

Me: “Okay. It’s 95.”

Customer: *instantly perks up* “Really? I can’t believe this whole thing is only 95 calories! I feel great about myself now!”

(The customer skips off and goes to her girlfriends, bragging about how she’s sticking to her diet.)
