At work one day, someone calls the store. I pick up.

Me: [Dollar Store], how can I help you?

Customer (on the phone): Hi there, I was here yesterday, and I bought a bag of that premade popcorn. Just after I opened it and ate a few pieces, I looked at the expiration date and it expired two days ago!

(People from the popcorn company just stocked and rotated all their products the previous morning, so there was no way there were any expired products on the shelves, but I decided to humor her.)

Me: Oh, I’m sorry about that, ma’am. If you bring in the rest of the popcorn in the bag and your receipt, we may be able to exchange it for you.

Customer: Oh, that won’t be necessary. I’m leaving tonight. But I don’t want to get sick while I’m gone! If food poisoning from this expired popcorn ruins my vacation, I’m going to be very upset! You all really need to pay attention to your stock! [click]

I wonder if she knows that you can’t get food poisoning from processed popcorn?
