The Joker Of The Pack

| Working | December 5, 2013

(I am partway through my graveyard shift in the word processing center at a nearby bank. I’ve stepped out to pick up some snacks, including a six-pack of a hard-to-find brand of soda that only this chain seems to carry.)

Cashier: “Oh. You can’t buy a whole six-pack of this. You have to buy just one.”

Me: “What?”

Cashier: *sternly* “You can’t buy the six-pack. You have to buy just one.”

Me: “Why would that be?”

Cashier: *suddenly smiling* “Oh. I was just messing with you!”

(The cashier rings up the six-pack. I stare in sullen silence.)
