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?
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...
