Be Careful What You Ask, You May Not Like the Answer

I ran a quick errand yesterday.

I was in search of three items. A cheap DVD player for the bedroom, paper towels and double A batteries. My scavenger hunt was successful and quick. Since I was in a store that sold in bulk quantities, I was able to procure more than enough batteries and paper towels to last at least 6 months.

I threw my purchases on the self check out conveyor belt and began tallying up the damage, patiently waiting for the computer to tell me what to do next. As a sign of good customer service, there are always attendants hovering around the self check out aisles ready to assist if needed. I was not in need of assistance however the male attendant decided to make a comment regarding my purchase.

Our exchange follows:

Bulk Store Attendant (BSA): Interesting grouping of items.

Wicked: Really? How so?

BSA: What do you need all these batteries for? (His question ends with a sneer)

Wicked: What do you think I need them for?

BSA: I asked first.

Wicked: Indeed. They are for Bob. He’s been getting a good workout lately.

BSA: (His face the deepest shade of red) Oh…um…it’s really none of my business…

Wicked: You asked and I answered, have a great day.

There are valid reasons I do not enjoy shopping; however this particular encounter was entertaining.

You go girl!!!

Reminds me the one time I was out with an ex of mine. For whatever dumbass reason, he had "13 1/2" tattoed on the top of his hand. It stood for 12 jurors, 1 judge, and a half-assed chance...(((yes, he'd done some time...LOL))) Anyway, we're going through a checkout line at a restaurant or something and this woman sees his tattoo...gives him a once over, and says "WHAT is 13 1/2"?? Without missing a beat, he replies "my dick size, wanna see"??

Talk about three shades of red...LOL

And no...he wasn't even close, just in case you were wondering....LOL
