Conveniently Ambiguous

| West Branch, IA, USA | Right | August 28, 2011

(The store I work at has an unfortunate name that, although not intended, sounds very “adult”.)

Me: “We go all out at [store]! How may I help you?”

Caller: *sounding concerned* “Yes, hello. I was just looking over my husband’s credit card bill and I saw a charge to [store] from a few months back. I was wondering…what kind of a business are you?”

Me: “We are a convenience store, ma’am.”

Caller: “Oh, good, thank you! You have a fantastic day now.”

Man, in the background of the call: “I told you!”

    I visited friends in Iowa last year and we took a picture of this gas station name. How was it not intended to sound ‘adult’? It’s spelt more like the adult word than the non-adult word.
