I'm all about the Constitution, including the Second Amendment. If you know and understand firearms and want to keep a closet full of guns, go right ahead. Get a license, gun locks and don't let your kids near them unless it is to teach them to respect firearms. But this isn't about gun control - which is a much messier subject.
The lines at the registers had really backed up Sunday afternoon, and all my help had gotten pulled from Customer Service, so this one woman and her kid were checking out at the Service Desk.
The kid, who was like 10, had an air pistol, some air pellets and a target. The kid and the mom were arguing over whether he needed the target and she asked me to scan it to see how much it was.
I scan the target and it came up $7.86. It was the next part of the conversation that got VEERRRRY interesting. Read down just a little.
ME: "The target is $7.86 ma'am. Do you want it?"
HER: "I don't know. Billy, do you want the target?" Nods his head.
HER (to me): "Will the pellets stick to the target?"
ME: "Ummmm...." looking at package "Okay, yes. They hit and slide down into the tray. It says it is supposed to work with the brand you're getting. Save your receipt and if it doesn't work, just bring it back."
HER: "I guess I better get the target. If not, he's going to be shooting the cat."
Might want to start putting money away for therapy now.
