I work at a party store. For the most part I love it, helping people find decorations, blowing up balloons. For the most part it’s fun. Sometimes though, oh sometimes people just make me shake my head.
It’s grad season. We have a whole section of graduation decorations. The other night two girls came in the store. They were buying decorations for their friends grad party. So they are 17 or 18 years old. They load up on decorations. Then they pick up one package and bring it over to me.
Girls:Do you have this in any other name?
Me: Uhm, what do you mean any other name?
Girls: Well we like the decorations but our friends name isn’t Brian.
Me: No, it doesn’t actually say ‘Brian’s Grad Party” you can personalize it.
Girls: Oh! So we can put whatever name we want on it?
I know I shouldn’t laugh. It’s kind of mean of me. But for heaven’s sakes actually read the darned packaging before you ask questions. I just walked away shaking my head trying not to giggle.
