His Groceries Have Just Been Terminated

(I am ringing up a customer at my register; she has just told me she forgot her rewards card at home.)

Me: “Do you have a reward card? Oh, shoot. Sorry! It’s just a habit to ask for it.”

Customer: “Haha, don’t worry about it. I understand.”

(There is an elderly man in line behind her.)

Elderly Man: “They’ve programmed you!”

Me: “Haha, yeah, I guess they have.”

Elderly Man: *shouting alarmingly* “They’ve programmed you! You’re some sort of robot, aren’t you?”

Me: *jokingly* “Yep, I’m a robot!”

Elderly Man: *totally serious* “I knew it! You filthy robot! You’re going to kill me, aren’t you? This is some kind of government conspiracy! They sent you here to kill me! Well, I won’t let you!”

(He ran out of the store.)
