There Should Be A Sign

, | Watson Lake, YK, Canada | Extra Stupid, Tourists/Travel

(I work at a little retail store beside our town’s main tourist attraction, the Signpost Forest, which has over 75,000 signs to date, right beside the Alaska Highway. A customer walks into the shop.)

Customer: “Where do I go to see the Signpost Forest?”

Me: “See right behind the shop, the hundreds of posts with the countless signs all over them?”

Customer: “Yah?”

Me: “See how they look like a forest?”

Customer: “Yah?”

Me: “That’s it.”

Customer: “…Are you sure?”

Caller: “Hey, so I heard y’all got them little books for [price]. It said on y’all’s website they five by five. How big is that?”

Me: “Well, ma’am, they’re five inches by five inches.”

Caller: “Yeah, but how big is that?”

Me: “It’s… five inches by five inches, ma’am.”

Caller: “Like, how big is that?”

Me: “Roughly the size of your hand.”

Caller: “Oh, so like three inches, then?”
