Infantile Inflation

, , , , , | Working | September 15, 2016

(I am teasing a customer’s daughter, who is absolutely not falling for my lies.)

Girl: “How much is the candy?”

Me: “A million-billion dollars.”

Girl: “Nuh-uh!”

Me: “Yup… million-billion dollars.”

Girl: “No, it isn’t!”

(A few minutes later, she notices one of the items on the shelves behind me.)

Girl: “What are those?”

Me: “They’re jars to put candy in. They cost five dollars, plus the price of candy.”

(She nods.)

Me: “And the candy is a million-billion dollars.”

Girl: “It is NOT!”

Not Like A Kid In A Candy Store

, , , , | Right | November 12, 2014

(The candy store I work in is located in the mall, so it’s pretty common to hear young children excitedly realizing that there’s a candy store. Today is really no different, so I simply chuckle when I hear a young boy start shouting.)

Boy: “Look! It’s the candy store! Candy store!”

(However, what he says next is a bit unusual.)

Boy: “And it’s all free, too!”

(Shocked, I rush to intercept the boy before he can actually get into the store, as we have bins right by the door which are easy for children to get into.)

Boy: “Free candy! Free candy! Free candy!”

Me: *alarmed* “Nothing is free! Nothing is free!

(The boy freezes in his tracks, just barely inside the store, and stares at me as though I’d just told him he was never getting another birthday present for the rest of his life.)

Boy: *betrayed* “NONE of it?!”

Me: “None of it!”

(He stared at me for a moment, then turned around and slowly trudged off. I’m just glad I was able to stop him!)

A Bitter Bad Behavior

, , , , , , | Related | January 22, 2014

(I work in a candy store. Our credit card machine has been out of service for a couple of days. We have a sign at the register, but I’ve been trying to let everyone know as they come into the store so that I don’t have to sort and restock large purchases when they turn out to not have enough money. I’ve just told a woman and her kids that the machine is broken and we’re taking cash/checks only.)

Woman: “Oh! Well, I do have some cash on me, so we should be okay.”

(She turns to her children.)

Woman: “I don’t have a lot of money, so we can all only get a little bit of candy, okay?”

Middle Daughter: *outraged* “Do you know how expensive I am in stores like this?!”
