They’re High Up To The (Ca)Nines

(I work in a dollar store and often times we have unique items for sale that will catch the attention of browsing customers. I am currently serving a man in his late 30s to early 40s while his wife is sifting through a box of decorative stones with a dog carved into them. The display box is labeled as “Dog Stones.”)

Man: *to wife* “What are you looking at now?”

Wife: *misreading the box* “Dog Stoners!”

Man: *to me* “What the h*** are ‘dog stoners’?

(I have noticed that there are two small children that have been wandering around all over the front of the store and try to be as careful with my wording as possible.)

Me: “They’re dog stones and they are essentially used for decoration. I don’t know about ‘dog stoners,’ but I assume it’s a group of laid back canines that engage in the recreational use of a particular plant.”

(The man widened his eyes a little before he cracked up. The wife finally picked a polished stone with the outline of a bulldog carved into it. The kids turned out to be more preoccupied with the “bedazzled” pocket flashlights.)
