We were in BHS earlier, buying the last couple of Christmas presents.
We needed to get a couple of little buts for my dad to compliment his main prezzie, so picekd up some shortbread biscuits and one of those multipacks of various real ales. Job done.
So I go to pay for the items, and the woman has trouble scanning them through the till, she tries a few times. Eventually it works.
She tries to explain 'It first asks if you're 18, then it asks if you're 21'
Fast as lightening, I flash the cheekiest smile I could muster and replied 'What, to buy shortbread?'
Now I thought that was a reasonably amusing thing to say, it's not gonna win any comedy awards, but it at least warrants a smile, right?
'No' the woman says, in all seriousness 'It's for the alcohol'
Merry smegging christmas to you too, you miserable old hag.....
