April Fool's Day.
Double yippee skippee.
I am just so excited about today - can you tell? I mean, today's fun. Pranks are played, lies are told, and it is considered perfectly acceptable to treat your fellows poorly. I always dread going to work on days like today, because I apt to have a customer with a great sense of humor who baits me with ridiculous banter and wastes my time in exchanges like the following:
Customer: Hi, I'd like your biggest bottle of lotion.
Me: Well, was there anything in particular you had in mind?
Customer: Yes, I would like one that smells like crap. APRIL FOOL'S!
Me: (plastered smile made of plastic and feigned happiness) You sure got me. Seriously, what sort of fragrances do you like?
Customer: Oh, I'm not really shopping for lotion.
IT ISN'T CUTE THE FIRST TIME, IT WON'T BE CUTE THE 200TH TIME.
