A Family-Friendly Store

(I overhear this conversation between a mom and a cashier.)

Cashier: “Your two daughters are so beautiful! They’re adorable!”

Mom: “Thanks! One of them is for sale! And they’re buy one, get one free!”

    Sounds like a joke my mom would’ve made. One time we were at a zoo in front of the wolf enclosure, and since wolves are my favorite animals, we spent quite a while there. Mom jokingly told another mother “Hey, if we want to get rid of them, we could throw them in there!”. Apparently, the other woman reacted with outrage.

      …which of course made it even funnier.

      My dad joked like that about us, and I still do it with the grandkids. Especially the “need any small chores done? You can have some free child labor!” when we’re at a cash register.

        That’s what I would tell the parents when their kids wandered behind my service desk at work while they coaxed them out: “it’s ok, we’ll just put them to work. They can sleep in receiving.”

    Well, our store forbids us from buying them, however we can accept them in lieu of payment.

    Sounds like Mom had had a bad day with those 2. Hope the girls were old enough to appreciate the “joke”.

      I don’t know why, but I’m picturing the girls as a pair of toddler twins.

        Me too, actually.

    Anytime someone complimented me or my sister in public, my father would always ask them if they wanted to take us with them.

  • Dana Corby

    Sounds like something my mother would have said. Wicked sense of humor.

    I like this mom’s sense of humor.
