(I’m at the register paying for my items. Suddenly a woman comes up to the till, rather rudely addressing the cashier that is checking me out:)

Customer: “Do you have [item]?”

(The cashier ignores her, packs my items, hands them to me while wishing a good day.)

Customer: “Do you have [item]?”(The worker slowly turns to her.)

Cashier: “Hello. What are you looking for?”

Customer: “Do you have [item]?”

Cashier: *smiles* “No, we don’t.”

(I mentally high-fived the cashier. Seems like some people aren’t familiar with manners.)

Me: “Hello!”

Customer: “Hi. I’m looking for a gift for my kid. Can you recommend me something?”

Me: “Of course! Are they a boy or a girl?”

Customer: “A boy.”

Me: “And how old is he?”

Customer: *looks at me as if I’m stupid* “I know how old my kid is.”

Me: *confused*

Not The Number One Solution

(With another family visiting us, we bring the children to a local water supply museum. Among other things, the guide tells us that it is the only water supply station in Europe that gets water from underground to collectors by vacuum pumps, which work similarly to sucking water through straw. He suggests we try that out ourselves later. So, back at home, we give each child one full and one empty cup and tell them to get all water from first cup to second through a straw. Some manage it sooner, some later, but one boy manages to just drink all his water.)

Boy: “Would it count if I now peed into the second cup?”

His Mom: “I don’t think the townspeople would care much for your solution.”
