Not Born Yesterday

, , | Right | December 15, 2009

(As a general rule, we refuse to tattoo anyone has had a baby in the last three months.)

Me: “Okay, so you’re getting this name?” *spells it out to check correct spelling*

Customer: “Yeah. Can I get her date of birth underneath, too?”

Me: “Sure, what is it?”

Customer: “19th September.”

Me: “Um, today is the 24th of November.”

Customer: “Yeah.”

Me: “So, your daughter isn’t three months old yet. We can’t tattoo you for another few weeks. We explained this when you arranged your appointment and you told us she’d be three months old.”

Customer: “She’s three months old.”

Me: “She can’t be, this is the 11th month. She was born in the ninth month. So she isn’t three months old.”

Customer: “She’s three months old.”

Me: “No, she’s two months old. She was born in September, so she’ll be three months in December.”

Customer: “Wait. So, she’s not three months old?”

Me: “Not for another month.”

Customer: “Oh.”
