We Need To Cool Down The Banana Reactor!

, , , , , | Right | October 7, 2022

Customer: “Can you go and fetch me a punnet of strawberries, please?”

Me: “Of course, ma’am.”

I go and fetch them, and she looks sour.

Customer: “No, not these. I need them larger and redder!”

I go and grab a few other options with the largest, plumpest-looking strawberries I can find.

Customer: “No, none of these are good, either.”

Me: “Ma’am, maybe you could pick out your own strawberries? They’re only a few feet behind me.”

Customer: “No. They’re next to the bananas.”

Me: “…?”

Customer: “Bananas are radioactive!”

Me: “Oh! While that’s technically true, it’s so weak that you’d need to eat millions of them before you got a fatal dose.”

Customer: “But you must have millions over there! I won’t risk it!”

The customer scurried off. I turned around and took roughly ten seconds to count the fourteen loose bananas we had on display.
