Default Polar Vortex 2019

I left my warm home to brave the wind chill to ring up this customer*

Customer: It's soooo cold!
Me: "I have no idea what you're talking about."
Customer: It's a shame that they put you on a register where it's so cold!
Me: "I do whatever my corporate overlords request of me."
Customer: You stay warm!
Me: "Sorry, I've retail so long my soul is cold and dark and doesn't allow me to be warm."

*It wasn't just one customer but pretty much the same conversation I had with everyone I rang up today. And I just had to add in what I may or may not have been thinking.
I would have a nice day, but I have other things to do.
