Please Be Warned; No Coronavirus Jokes in This Location

Which is not to say that someday they may be here.

Words to live by from the redoubtable Julia Childs -
"A party without cake is really just a meeting."  We've been partying pretty good here, but in an effort not to get fat, we downgraded to cookies, not cake.  Same difference.  At least 5 lbs. plus.

If "the customer is always right" is true, there should be a bounty on the following:

I work at a pet store.  A customer called wanting to buy a  dog squeaky toy but he didn't know which kind so he made me pick a selection and squeak them into the phone until he heard what he wanted.

I work at a book store and was standing there when a customer demanded that my assistant give her a haircut.

Another woman in another book store had a tantrum when, trying to help her kid with a dinosaur project, didn't believe (and subsequently tantrumed) that we didn't have any books with photographs of dinosaurs.  Photos.

Shopping - Accidentally went grocery shopping on an empty stomach - C'mon fella - accident?  And I'm now the proud owner of Aisle 7 (baked goods.)

One of The World's Strongest Man events should include pulling two grocery carts apart.

If I worked in a record store, I would tell every customer that bought something, "All sales are vinyl."

Exercise equipment for sale: owner is having a going-out-of-fitness sale.
