The Answer To Life, The Universe, And Everything

(We greet customers as they come in and answer questions they may have. A man comes in with his wife and comes over to me.)

Me: “Did you have a question, sir?”

Customer: “So, what have you heard about woodchucks?”

(I’m completely confused, so I try to just play along.)

Me: “I hear they chuck wood.”

(The customer begins to scowl at me, actually looking offended and disgusted with my answer. He then asks me a few questions about some of our products before heading off to shop.)

Customer: *cryptically* “And you keep thinking about those woodchucks…”

(He returns later and I am the cashier to take care of him. He brings up the woodchuck thing again as he’s about to leave.)

Customer: “I’ve only had one person, this old man — a veteran — answer me correctly. He told me… 42.”
