in which a customer steps on my feelings

I like making small talk with customers while they’re at the register.

So yesterday, while I was ringing in a woman who was buying a dinosaur book, I told her that Liam and I love dinosaurs too, and that I’d once planned a Jurassic Park wedding jokingly.

The woman replied with “Oh, my husband would marry you in a second!”

To which he replied “WHAT? OH MY GOD NO.”

Well now.

  1. Ouch!

    I once had a similar conversation with a customer about my boyfriend and me watching dinosaur films, and her response was, “How old IS your son?”

    If that's the case, I don't ever want to be his friend. He sounds like a downer.
