Jesus Is The Muffin Man

| Right | July 9, 2015

(A customer approaches the counter, slowly emptying her pockets of coins. The amount comes to $2.60.)

Customer: “I will take two muffins, please.”

Me: “No problem; that will be $9.”

Customer: “What?!” *gestures toward her change on the counter* “But I only have this.”

(I point out various food items that can be purchased for that price, but she shakes her head vehemently.)

Customer: “No, I don’t want those. I want two muffins!”

Me: *starting to feel apologetic* “Well… um. It’s $9.”

Customer: *stares at me for a long moment* “Don’t you have a heart?”

Me: *uncomfortable* “Er, yes? Of course I do.”

Customer: “If you had a heart, you’d give me my muffins!”

Me: “I really need this job, ma’am. I can’t afford to be fired for giving food away.”

Customer: “But it’s just a job! Jesus will love you if you give me muffins! That’s much better than a job!”
