I've got my towel...

Ty, TT! I used to have people in my life who would tell me about such things, but unfortunately (for the sake of finding out such things), I've outlived them all.

How do you tell if it's a live grenade, again? As opposed to a dummy, which I presume that one is?

If you pre-form them elsewhere, can you bring them around to perform them here?

When I call a place just to see if they are currently open, I'll generally ask something of substance, like "what time do you close?", "what are your hours?", or "where are you?", so that it's not a wasted call on either end.

I will miss the new posts and the responses from other readers! I've only been reading a few months, but it has been a pressure valve for me. I'm an older woman who used to work in an office job, but had to leave that after 25-30 years for circumstances I won't go into (had to relocate, etc.). I haven't been able to get a similar job in my new location and wound up in retail. I started on the floor (reshops, etc.), but wasn't really good with it. However I was good enough with the register and customers that I was eventually promoted to the service desk, where I deal with the returns, etc. I've had my ups and downs, of course, but the stories I've got aren't really all that much to tell. I will brag about a customer stopping me yesterday as I was walking out to my car to tell me how much she enjoys when she has me as her checkout person, so I guess I'm doing okay there. But I'm going to miss this site!

Both are funny! Personally, I keep remembering Dr. Horrible's comment at the end of part 1, after losing the girl he was sweet on to his arch-nemesis. He's singing about how Captain Hammer threw her in the garbage to keep a van from hitting her, but she's all starry-eyed about a hero rescue. Dr. Horrible walks away muttering "Balls!"

Do these people actually think we don't want to make the sale? That's the entire purpose of having a store, so if we genuinely don't have the item, we aren't lying about it! (Not intentionally, anyways.) Maybe, if the info was correct, the item in question was sold while the woman was on the bus. And computer databases are wrong so very frequently! (Sotto voce: user error and shrink...) And I won't even go into proprietary info...

Spoilers: So much care to craft the triple cone and you just throw it at her!?! What game is this? This is hilarious!

Tell her "it's the law" and drop it. Rinse and repeat, if necessary. (Btw, I'm that age and I have zero problem pulling out a DL when I get Sudafed. I'm not making meth, but they don't know that, so ID.)

Made me remember the title of the movie "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover".

Knowing what the sign really says actually makes the joke funnier, imho.

But it's not sausage, either! (I do see the highlighter attempting to scribble out the "apple".)

A minute is even longer when you're on the wrong side of the bathroom door. At least the spelling is correct, aside from a missing apostrophe. Maybe the person putting up the letters had to go?

If you have to ask, better include chocolate!
