It Still Brings Me Joy

(I own a comic book store. I’ve been in business for about a year when a popular animated movie about anthropomorphic emotions is released. As such, we have some stock related to the movie, including blind box figures of the various characters. A woman is paying for an item when her very goth teenage son — thirteen or fourteen, I’d guess — picks up one of the boxes.)

Goth: “I really wanted to like this movie, but I couldn’t relate to it.”

(He puts the box back, and stares me straight in the face.)

Goth: “The only emotions in my head are Sadness and Anger.”

(His mother rolled her eyes as I tried not to laugh, but even years later, I remember that dude and it always makes me smile!)
