The Root Of His Concern  

, , , | Right | November 24, 2019

(I’m a cashier at a retail chain; the location I work at is in a mall. The customer I’m ringing up has a child with her who looks about seven or eight.)

Child: *apropos of nothing* “You know there’s an A&W upstairs, right?”

Me: *wondering where this could possibly be going* “Yes.”

Child: “Then why do you sell root beer?”

(His mom and I both laugh.)

Me: “Because sometimes people like to buy root beer in places other than A&W.”

(He didn’t say anything else, so I assume my answer satisfied him. I love when kids ask questions like that!)
