Holy Doppelgänger Batman!

| Anchorage, AK, USA | Right | July 17, 2017

(I work as a cashier at a local gas station. A few hours ago, I had rung up a girl in a Batman costume, and now I’m ringing up another customer in a Batman shirt.)

Me: *joking* “Huh, I didn’t know there were two Batmans running around Gotham.”

Customer: *playing along* “Nope, there’s only one Batman, and that is me.”

Me: “Oh, gosh, I wonder who that last Batman was then. Hope it isn’t the Joker.”

Customer: *looks around mock-seriously* “Which way did he go?!”

Me: “Actually, it was a she. It could have been Harley.”

Customer: “I’ll keep my eye out for her. Thank you.”

(He left with his bags after I finished up. When he got out the door, I heard him exclaim “To the Batmobile!” and I just lost it. That guy made my day!)

  • The first one was clearly either Batgirl or Batwoman. The Batfam is large and diverse.

    • I was gonna say “maybe it was Barbara Gordon”

    • Gnomer Denois

      Or that one Robin.

        Stephanie “Spoiler” Brown!

        Robins look nothing like Batmen. Batmen wear pants, a Robins are red.

  • That One Person

    They never said which way she went… The cashier must be the Joker!

  • Ty Vulpine

    Adam Westing

    • Cathrope

      May he RIP. 🙁

    • Hodge Elmwood

      Adam WEST, not Westing.

      • Christine Wood

        No no, it’s a verb. Saying that someone is Adam Westing means they are hamming up a performance. It’s usually a compliment on the goofy fun level of the performance.

        • Out of respect for the man, I think I’ll withhold the pun that sprang to mind for this one.

  • Pisces

    That girl wasn’t Batman. That was Batwoman…or Batgirl. We don’t know exactly what she looks like

  • Glowworm

    That was a hilarious customer!

  • AKchic

    Great. I can’t even get gas without an incident anymore.
    Thanks for blowing my cover!

  • HeadlessGhostOfAbrahamLincoln

    No one is wondering why the girl was dressed as the bat?

    • Jackie Fauxe

      To protect her identity while fighting crime, obviously.

      • Hahn Ackles

        Best answer. XD

    • TheWonderRabbit

      Why was the guy?

      …or, why WASN’T the cashier?

      • S123

        The guy wasn’t wearing a full costume, just the shirt.

  • Mike Rosoft

    Holy Batman, Batman!

  • Abigail Hermione Irwin

    I love customers like that one! 😀

  • Megan Hunter

    Yes, because Batman is clearly known for crime fighting while wearing a t-shirt. The first one was obviously the real Batman.

  • Trey Logan

    Gotham City Impostors anyone?
