Well, you're at a Picnic…
Here's one from the archives of my brain…..
I used to work in the "wine country" in a winery that had a cheese shop and picnic grounds etc….. It was typical for customers to pick up a case or two of wine and then some picnic items and go relax on our grounds.
I was working on the day that the Challenger exploded. This of course was a sad day, but I know that I'm not the only person who was required to go on with normal life that day.
Anyway, this guy comes to my register with some wine and picnic items and it really was a very unmemorable tranaction until the end
Me: Thanks, have a nice day
SC: (sets down his bag) I can't believe you just said that
Me excuse me?
SC I can't believe that you just told me to have a nice day. How could you possibly say that after what happened to Challenger this morning?!
SC: This is a sad day! People need to think about that.
He then stomped off to have his picnic outside. My manager just looked at me and told me that she's glad that I didn't say any of the things that were probably coming into me head about then!
