(I work at the local bookstore. I am trying to grow our small graphic novel and manga section so that it is worthwhile. A customer and his mom have stopped in to look around. He is about 16 years old.

Customer: “Mom, can I please get a new comic book?”

Customer’s Mom: “I don’t know. You just got one.”

(The mom looks over at me working at the register.)

Customer’s Mom: “Here’s the deal. Play your ringtone to her. If she can name the song or at least where it comes from, I will buy you a new comic book.”

(The customer’s son looks at his phone shyly as he looks for his ringtone. The music starts to play the theme song to ‘Robot Chicken.’)

Me: “Oh my god! That’s Robot Chicken!”

(I proceed to bock like a chicken with it. The customer’s mom looks at me incredulously and shakes her head.)

Customer’s Mom: “I made a deal.”

(They bought the comic book and are leaving. The mom is moaning loudly to her son.)

Customer’s Mom: “I can’t believe that the one person I point out knows exactly what it is! You’re everywhere! She doesn’t even look like she likes that kind of stuff!”

Customer: “How do I get money out of this account?”

Coworker: “It’s an internet based savings account. You can transfer money from it online.”

Customer: “Can’t I get it from a tray in my computer?”

Coworker: *trying not to laugh* “Unfortunately that’s not a facility on your account.”

Customer: “Well, it looks like I’ll have to change banks!”

(I’m just coming on shift in the emergency room. A patient approaches my desk, then leans over and glares down at me.)

Patient: “I just want you to know that if I go home and die because of your substandard care that I’m going to sue you and never forgive the hospital.”

(The patient doesn’t give me any chance to say anything before he walks out the door.)

Coworker: “I wonder how many lawyers take on angry ghosts as clients?”
