Rob: What’s going on?
Julie: He puked.
Rob: Huh?

Thursday Morning

Clerk: Time to renew!
Julie: I renewed last month.
Clerk: Looks like you upgraded instead. That’s good!
Julie: I didn’t want to upgrade, I wanted to renew.

Thursday Afternoon

Julie: Can you tell me the sale price on these boy shoes?
Clerk: Looks like they’re not on sale.
Julie: Even though there are twenty-five bright red signs everywhere saying “All shoes on sale”?
Clerk: I guess not.

Julie: Where are the toddler girls jeans?
Clerk: I guess we don’t have any.
Julie: You don’t have ANY toddler jeans? I need to exchange these.
Clerk: Nope, I guess not. Maybe in a few weeks. Can you wait a few weeks?
Julie: No.
Clerk: Just exchange them for something else.
Julie: Fine.

20 min later…

Clerk: Can I get your email address for your membership? Oh, sorry. See this teeny sign? We discontinued our KidVantage Club. You can’t exchange any of those without a receipt.
Julie: I have never needed a receipt before because of my membership info. Can’t you look up my purchase? That’s why you have my email address.
Clerk: No. I can only see some purchases. You have to go home, sign in, print out your receipt, then come back. Would you still like to buy those anyway?
Julie: No.

Mom: I don’t know. But you play so well with your boy cousins!
Nate: But I play so well with Cara, too. That means I’m ready for a little brother!
Mom: Dad and I don’t know if we’re ready for a baby.
Nate: But I am! Whaa!
