Not Being Five Makes Them All Sixes And Sevens

, , , | Related | June 2, 2018

(I am second in line behind a woman and a child at a buffet-style restaurant. At this restaurant, one child five years old or younger will eat free with the purchase of an adult meal.)

Woman: “One adult and a five-year-old.”

Child: “I AM SEVEN!”

Cashier: “One adult and a five-year-old.”

Child: “NO, I AM SEVEN!”

Cashier: “Okay. An adult and a seven-year-old.”

(The cash register screen displays an adult and free child. The mother pays, thanks the cashier, and then leaves.)

Me: “Kid didn’t want a free meal, huh?”

Cashier: “Guess not.”

(In the background we hear the kid yelling.)

Child: “I AM SEVEN. YOU KNOW I AM SEVEN. WHY WOULD YOU SAY I AM FIVE?!”
