(I’m at the register at a store where the only music playing over the intercom is the Beatles, currently “I Want to Hold Your Hand.”)

Me: “You’re lucky. You can listen to the Beatles while working. That’s pretty cool.”

(The cashier hands me my bag, looks me dead in the eye, and replies with chilling serenity.)

Cashier: “This CD is only an hour and a half long, and it’s the only CD we’ve been allowed for the past five months. They can ‘hold my hand’ when they pry it from its bloody stump. Would you like your receipt?”

(When I went back a month later, the music hadn’t changed.)
