Molasses

I went to Fry's to get some molasses to make gingerbread.  I walked down the 2 aisles I thought I would most likely find it, but had no success.


So I went and found a worker who I thought would point me in the right direction.  I found someone and this is how it went:

Me:   Hi.  I need help finding the molasses.  Can you tell we what aisle it's on?

Worker 1: Yeah... I think it's with the honey or the syrup.  Let me see. (Turns to another worker)  Can you help this lady find the molasses?

Worker 2: (to worker 1, not even acknowledging me) Okay. Yeah,  I think it's over in pharmacy.

(At this point I thought it would probably just be faster to go look again and find it myself, so I turned and started walking to the aisle I had already checked.  15 seconds later I heard footsteps--worker 2 was following me.  I looked in the aisle with the honey and had no luck so I started towards the syrup aisle.)

Worker 2: I thought the molasses was over in pharmacy.  I mean what is molasses?  Isn't that the stuff you give kids when they're sick to shut them up?

Me: No...

Worker 2: Oh right.  It's what you take to have an abortion.

Me: Uhh, no.  I don't think so.  But here it is.  Thanks


Really?  The things people think...

WHAT?! Are those workers for REALS?! Stupid. And that's why they are Fry's workers and not physicists or pilots!!!
