Mr. Literal

We were in Petsmart tonight buying one hundred billion dollars in supplies for the kittens. The cashier was a nice lady, and she noticed the kitten supplies and started talking about her own cat, etc. So she rang everything up and we were all just standing there chatting. She was so nice that I was absolutely not paying attention to the fact that this was a retail transaction. After a couple of minutes, she finally said "So, have you swiped your card yet?"

I said, "No, I'm just standing here like an idiot." Then, feeling a further need to explain, I said "It's kind of a hobby."

Smooth. You can just imagine what kind of operator I was when I was single.
