(A woman in her forties walks in…)

Customer: “I’d like $5 worth of games for a Nintendo DS and the system itself. This should cover it all.”

Manager: “I’d like you to leave the store, please.”

Customer: “FINE! NERDS!”

Worker: “You mean, the Incredible Hulk?”

Lady: “Yeah, that’s it!”

Me/My friends: “…”
