Interview With A Not-Vampire

, , , | Right | March 2, 2018

(I work at a 24-hour convenience store and gas station. It’s around three in the morning. A couple come in to buy food and snacks for the rest of their trip and to pay for gas. They clearly have been traveling a long distance, and they have their two very young children in tow. It’s late and they all look tired, so they’re very quiet until they get to my register.)

Little Girl: “Excuse me, ma’am. Are you a vampire?”

Me: “Who, me? No, I’m not a vampire.”

Little Girl: “Then why are you up so late, and here by yourself?”

(The mother looks horrified and I can tell the father is trying not to laugh.)

Me: “I don’t know. Why are you up so late?”

(She got a surprised look on her face, like she was actually considering that she might be a vampire, and she was quiet while they finished their purchases and walked back out to the car. This was by far my favorite experience of my normally boring graveyard shifts.)
