Exclamation I don't have kids...yet.

Customer: Would you like a six-year old today?
Me: No thank you.
Customer: I could drop him off.
Me: Right, no.
Customer: He could be quite entertaining…

I don't want my own kids...I certainly don't want yours!

That lady sounds like my mom. She kept (i think) joking to waitresses and other people about trading me instead of paying her bill, or even just for a discount. It's been a while since she's pulled that one though, she's more into the whole trying to fix me up.

I have offered my boss my 16 y.o. brother (whom I act as surrogate parent to during the school year) several times. He has 21 1/2 month old twins, I try to tell him it will be good training, but so far, he hasn't bit.

Maybe she was trying to be funny, but it's not unheard of for parents to abandon (or try to) their children that way. I'd read a story or two about it in the newspaper in the past.

My older siblings would occasionally mutter something about selling myself and Bella to the gypsies, or letting them kidnap us. I'm forever threatening to sell my nieces and nephews to the Amish.

Sort of on topic:

When I give my customers a contract to sign (I sell cell phones) they seem to think "Am I signing away my first-born?" is a witty comment. I usually just tell them, "Yes, actually, that's why I work here, my parents didn't pay their bill."

Maybe if they spent more time actually reading the contract instead of making lame jokes, they wouldn't be so surprised down the road when they realize they can't just make up the terms of service.
