Pulling A Not So Fast One

(In California, we have laws that ban certain animals as being pets. Our shop is legally required to notify police when one comes in.)

Customer: “My poor ferret is sick!”

Me: “I’m sorry to hear that. What is your name?”

(The woman tells me her name.)

Me: “I’m sorry for the trouble, but you can’t own a ferret in this state. I’m going to have to report you.”

Customer: “What? You can’t tell me that I can’t have a pet!”

Me: “Ma’am, ferrets are illegal in California by state law. They’re still considered a threat to local birds.”

Customer: “Fine!”

(She walks out and comes back in less than five minutes later.)

Customer: “I have a bunny who isn’t feeling well.”
