Sarcasm Comes In Many Sizes

, , , | Right | April 7, 2020

(I am known for exaggerating when I talk, but even strangers can usually tell that I am joking by my voice and completely unrealistic exaggerations. I am at a well-known burger joint to exchange a T-shirt I bought for a smaller size.)

Clerk: “Hi, what can I get for you?”

Me: “Actually, I’m here to see if I can exchange a shirt that I bought the other day for a smaller size since this one was like eight sizes too big.”

(The clerk goes pale and her eyes get really wide.)

Clerk: “Eight… sizes…?”

(She looked completely terrified for a moment and I realized she had no idea I was joking. I awkwardly recovered and explained the situation, but I felt very silly after that conversation!)
