Star Of Devil

, , , , | Right | August 30, 2017

(I have taken a part time job while studying at university. The bookstore is near to campus.)

Customer: “I love how Satanic this section is. All the pentagrams! It’s so fresh!”

Me: “Pentagrams?”

(She points at a book.)

Me: “No, that’s the Star of David.”

Customer: *blank stare*

Me: “Judaism?”

Customer: *blank stare*

Me: “You’re in the theology section.”

Customer: “Ooooh, and is Satanism a religion, too?”

Me: “I think it is, but we don’t sell anything relating to it.”

Customer: “Then what about the pentagram?”

Me: “It’s the Star of David.”

Customer: “Is that like New Age Satanism?”

Me: “No, it’s Judaism; one of the oldest religions in the world.”

Customer: *blank stare*

Me: “You know, Jews?”

Customer: “Is that what they’re calling themselves nowadays?”

Me: “…no.”

(I excused myself and returned to the checkout. I refused to accept that she was being serious, but according to the shop owner, he had met shoppers that were stupider than that.)
