Try Not To Squash His Imagination

| Working | May 2, 2014

(I’m the customer in this story, and I’m in my 30s. The cashier is a boy in his late teens. I’m buying some produce and he is entering the product codes and making small talk.)

Cashier: “Okay, so that’s a cucumber… Oh, no, a zucchini, I guess. It’s pretty runty.”

Me: “Yeah, it is pretty early in the season. When we grow them in our garden they get to be up to five pounds.”

Cashier: “Good thing you’re not making zucchini bread! You’d need, like, ten of these!” *laughs*

(The cashier then turns to me, leans in and gets serious.)

Cashier: “So, this is, like, for a bachelorette party, right?”

(I don’t know how I got out of the store without laughing.)
